"Comanche" as written by and John Mccrea....
You need to straighten your posture and suck in your gut.
You need to pull back your shoulders and tighten your butt.
Yeah come Comanche Comanche Comanche commode.
If you want to have cities you've got to build roads.
You need to find some new feathers and buy some new clothes.
Just get rid of the antlers and lighten your load.
Yeah come Comanche Comanche Comanche commode.
Yeah if you want to have cities, you've got to build roads.
You need to straighten your posture and suck in your gut.
You need to pull back your shoulders and tighten your butt.
Yeah, come Comanche, Comanche, Comanche, commode.
Ah, if you want to have cities,
Yeah, if you want to have cities,
No, if you want to have cities,
You've got to build roads.

    Song MeaningI know it's not what it's about at all, but this song reminds me of The Settlers of Catan.

    General CommentNo, its definately not a cover. As for the meaning, I'm pretty sure it's about giving PR advice to Native Americans. As always with Cake, you can't really tell if they're being serious, ironic, political, or just messing with you. As a song, it's pretty great, and it puts you in the right mindset for the rest of the album.

    I am pretty sure it is "oh yea!" not "onion"

    General CommentCake doesn't seem to be so popular with my friends, so I burned my best friend a CD and had Comanche on there and she is in love.
