Very old and free is this voice I heard
Echoed in the breeze and the buffalo herds
All that I learned from the beasts and these birds is it's home to me
And that's all right when they sing "hooyip, hooyip, hoo hoo"

Burial at sea is this bus stop line
According to the customs and creed of this culture, my tribe
But that was never me, that request was not mine
I wanted to choke on the rifle smoke
Yeah, I wanted to go down with my right hand broke
Come on and "hooyip, hoo hoo"
I wanted to go down with my right hand broke

Cause in the motorcade, I'm a runaway
And I'll never change, not tomorrow
La da da da da da da da, da
Hooyip, hoo hoo

Safe and merrily, a life dignified
Rapids on the stream make the wild ride
Your life is but a dream if you bide and bide
But I'll be on that boat when the water's white
Yeah I wanted to learn to love before I die
Come on and "hooyip, hoo hoo"
I wanted to learn to love before I die

In the motorcade, I'm a runaway
And I'll never change, not tomorrow
La da da da da da da da, da

Somebody said hey is there any end in sight?
Somebody said hey to this foolish, fruitless ride

In the motorcade I'm a runaway
And I'll never change, not tomorrow
In the motorcade I'm a runaway
And I'll never change, not tomorrow
La da da da da da da da, da

Come on and "hooyip, hoo hoo..."
I wanted to go down with my right hand broke
