Christopher Columbus discovered America
Found he had a cornucopia
Gave love to the Indians and they gave it back
A pow wow in the teepee is where it's at

I wanna dance with you
I wanna dance with you
I wanna dance with you
I wanna dance with you

The Indian fought with his arrow and bow
Till General Custer lost to Sitting Bull
Scalped all day and scalped all night
Give me that fire water, gonna buy me a wife

I wanna dance with you
I wanna dance with you
I wanna dance with you
I wanna dance with you

When your people first moved to our block
Our ancestors met with culture shock
Two different monkeys from two different trees
Come on, let's stop our fightin' and come dance with me

Come on, dance with me
Come on, and dance with me
'Cause I really wanna dance with you
I want to dance with you
Come on and dance with me
