For Your Immediate Attention!
(B.B.)
What happened to the Red Man
Didn't this used to be his land
What happened to the Red Man
Didn't this used to be his land

Why don't you sit yourself down
I’m gonna tell you a story bout
the Red Man
Sit yourself down
I’m gonna tell you a story bout
the Red Man

History books, never tell the truth
They cover it with lies
to keep it from you
Sit yourself down
I'm gonna tell you a story bout
the Red Man

They took his land and his life
killed his children and raped his wife
What happened to the Red Man
Didn't this used to be his land?
What happened to the Red Man
Didn't this used to be his land?

Now the Indian was kind
the Indian was good
He gave those settlers
everything he could
Showed them how to plow the land
and how to til the soil
He gave them a helping hand
many years ago

What happened to the Red Man
Didn't this used to be his land
What happened to the Red Man
Didn't this used to be his land

Now what did those settlers have to say
When they came on their boats
from so very far away
We wanna be friends with you,
We wanna be neighbors too
We want to learn from you,
We want to civilize you

Give us your corn and some land
Won't you give us a helping hand
We wanna be friends with you,
We wanna be neighbors too
We want to learn from you,
We want to civilize you

Give us your silver,
turquoise and diamonds
We've got cheap labor and we
can mine them
We wanna be friends with you,
We wanna be neighbors too,
We want to learn from you,
We want to civilize you

Now this is the story bout
the rich and the greedy
how they made a pact
with a phoney treaty
How they stole the land
from the red man
There is blood all over their hands

What happened to the Red Man
Didn't this used to be his land
What happened to the Red Man
Didn't this used to be his land
