A Cherokee chief as he dances along
Sings an Indian boogie to a white man's song

Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Well, he dances over here and he dances over there
Now he's dancing with a squal called Standing Bear

Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Well, he dances on the hill and he dances on the rock
But he keeps on shaking that tomahawk

Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Well, he sings a little soft and he sings a little loud
With his tom-tom beatin' so big and proud

Singin'"Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin'"Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Well, he dances over here and he dances over there
Now he's dancing with a squal called Standing Bear

Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads

Now, he's a Cherokee Chief as a you all might know
When he keeps on a singing 'Niven-yo'

Singin'"Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin'"Hey-ho-a-lina"
(Hey-ho-a-lina)
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina" oh oh no it's in our heads
