Not Enough Indians Lyrics

by Dean Martin

Wagon train of lovin' movin' slow
An' I can see the peace pipe burnin' low
You criticize each little thing I do
But listen, baby, I've got news for you

There's too many chiefs and not enough Indians
Around this house
Baby, I'm tired of this old game we play
Called cat and mouse

If you don't give just a little bit more
We're both gonna lose this race
'Cause there's too many chiefs and not enough Indians
Around this place

Trouble on our happy huntin' ground
'Cause you keep steppin' too far out of bounds
It's hard to run this reservation right
When you stay on the warpath day and night

Well, there's too many chiefs and not enough Indians
Around this house
An' baby, I'm tired of this old game we play
Called cat and mouse

If you don't give just a little bit more
We're both gonna lose this race
'Cause there's too many chiefs and not enough Indians
Around this place

Look at all the things I have to do
To keep this teepee runnin' just for you
Well, time's are tough and wampum's hard to save
Just remember who's the squaw and who's the brave

Well, there's too many chiefs and not enough Indians
Around this house
Baby, I'm tired of this old game we play
Called cat and mouse

If you don't give just a little bit more
We're both gonna lose this race
'Cause there's too many chiefs and not enough Indians
Around this place
