Indians? Just get a few
Drunk and have them sign the thing.
Any Indians will do,

Though of the right tribe. Then you
Take it to court, to me, and bring
The Indians, just a few --

Chiefs this time, if you can -- to view
The words that will their wandering.
Though any Indians will do.

Then some pleas I'll get you through
Before we turn to exiling
The Indians, just a few

I'll quickly rule against, then cue
The troops to start the harrowing.
Any Indians will do,

Until they get the message. You
Can start to buy up land by spring.
So get some Indians -- just a few.
Any Indians will do.
