"Indian Reservation"
Better Lyrics:
They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation...
We built casinos and big hotels,
And now we're doing very well
Cherokee people! Cherokee tribe!
So proud to live--so proud to die!
And when the white man's cash we've earned,
Cherokee Nation will return
Will return
Will return
Will return....
Original Lyrics:
They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
But though I wear a shirt and tie
I'm still a red man deep inside
Cherokee people! Cherokee tribe!
So proud to live--so proud to die!
And maybe someday when we've learned
Cherokee nation will return
Will return
Will return
Will return....

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Indian Reservation"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
They took away our way of life
The tomahawk and the Bowie knife
Why They're Nonsensical:
The Bowie knife was part of the Indian way of life/culture? A knife developed and named after a white man? Nice rhyme but not realistic.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Steppin' Out "
The Lyrics:
Well, I had to leave town because of Uncle Sam's deal, ha ha ha yeah
Well, I guess my good lovin' done lost its appeal
Because when I come back I heard the bad bad news
They say our big romance has been gettin' abused
Now tell me true, don't lie to me
Have you been step, step, step, step, step, step, steppin' out on me?
I've got ways of findin' out if you've been steppin' out on me
It'll do me good and I'll give you a piece of my mind
Why:
An Armed Forces soldier who is either on leave or has finished his enlistment returns home to discover his girlfriend has reportedly been seeing another man behind his back. In the song, he is confronting her and informing her that he has no qualms about ending the relationship if the story is true.

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Coincidence, maybe?"
the band's singer and organist Paul Revere (real name, originally "Paul Revere Dick") passed away over the weekend. The band was notorious for wearing American Revolutionary Era costumes at their performances. Paul Revere died at the unique and ironic age of 76! That's right, as in 1776 = year of Declaration of Independence. Geddit?
Submitted by: Spiritwalker of 76
"Drive Drive Drive The Car"
The bandleader Paul Revere played an electric organ that was custom made to resemble a white convertible car.

"A REAL Wardrobe Malfunction"
My mom told me when I was a teenager she saw this band perform on a Dick Clark type show like Shindig or Hullabaloo. They'd play while wearing American Revolution period getup. One of the Raiders' tri-corn hat fell off his head and instead of picking it off the floor he just kept on playing and he danced around his hat! That's true devotion to your art, folks!
Submitted by: One If By Land, Two If By Sea

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Revolutionary War Uniforms"
This group was on a lot of Dick Clark-produced shows of the 1960's like "Where the Action Is" and "Happening '68" and their Revolutionary-War costumes made them stand out.
