    "Kaw-Liga" Lyrics

    Kaw-liga was a wooden Indian standing by the door.
    He fell in love with an Indian maiden over in the antique store.
    Kaw-liga just stood there and never let it show,
    So she could never answer "yes" or "no."

    Poor ol' Kaw-liga, he never got a kiss.
    Poor ol' Kaw-liga, he don't know what he missed.
    Is it any wonder that his face is red?
    Kaw-liga, that poor ol' wooden head.

    He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk.
    The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped some day he'd talk.
    Kaw-liga, too stubborn to ever show a sign,
    Because his heart was made of knotty pine.

    Kaw-liga was a lonely Indian, never went nowhere.
    His heart was set on the Indian maid with the coal black hair.
    Kaw-liga just stood there and never let it show,
    So she could never answer "yes" or "no."

    And then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid,
    And took her, oh, so far away, but ol' Kaw-liga stayed.
    Kaw-liga just stands there as lonely as can be,
    And wishes he was still an old pine tree.
