Steady As The Beating Drum [Native Americans]
Hega hega yah-pi-ye-hega
Yah-pi-ye-he-he hega

Hega hega yah-pi-ye-hega
Yah-pi-ye-he-he hega

Steady as the beating drum
Singing to the cedar flute
Seasons Go and seasons Come
Bring the corn and bear the fruit

By the waters sweet and clean
Where the mighty sturgeon lives
Plant the squash and reap the bean
All the earth our mother gives

O Great Spirit, hear our song
Help us keep the ancient ways
Keep the sacred fire strong
Walk in balance all our days

Seasons go and seasons come
Steady as the beating drum
Plum to seed to bud to plum
(Hega hega yah-pi-ye hega)
Steady as the beating drum

Hega hega yam-pi-ye-hega
Yah-pi-ye-ne-he hega
