Laurie Anderson "HIAWATHA"

By the shores of Gitchi Gumee
By the shining Big-Sea-Water
Downward through the evening twilight
In the days that are forgotten
From the land of sky blue waters

And I said:
Hello Operator
Get me Memphis Tennessee
And she said: I know who you're tryin to call darlin
And he's not home he's been away
But you can hear him on the airwaves
He's howling at the moon
Yeah this is your country station
And honey this next one's for you.

And all along the highways
And under the big western sky
They're singing Ooo oooooo
They're singing Wild Blue.

And way out on the prairie
And up in the high chaparral
They hear a voice it says: Good evening
This is Captain Midnight speaking
And I've got a song for you
Goes something like this:

Star bright
We're gonna hang some new stars
in the heavens tonight.
They're gonna circle by day
They're gonna fly by night
We're goin sky high.
Yoo Hooooo hooo.
Yeah yoo hooo
Ooo Hooooooooo

So good night ladies
And good night gentlemen
Keep those cards and letters coming
And please don't call again.

Geronimo and little Nancy Marilyn and John F. dancing
Uncle took the message and it's written on the wall.
These are pictures of the houses
Shining in the midnight moonlight
While the King sings Love Me Tender.
And all along the watchtowers
and under the big western sky
They're singing Yoo Hooooo
They're singing Wild Blue.

And wau wau up there,
Bursting in air Red rockets, bright red glare

From the land of sky blue waters
Sent by freedom's sons and daughters.
We're singing Ooo Hoooooooo
We're singing Wild Blue.
We're singing Ooo Hoooooooo Ooo Hooooooooo

And dark behind it rose the forest
Rose the black and gloomy pine trees
Rose the firs with ones upon them
And bright before it beat the water
Beat the clear and sunny water
Beat the shining Big-Sea-Water…
