"Kaw-Liga" as written by Fred Rose and Sr. Williams....
Poor old Kaw-Liga, he never got a kiss
Poor old Kaw-Liga, he don't know what he missed

Is it any wonder that his face is red?
Kaw-Liga, that poor old wooden head

Kaw-Liga was a wooden Indian standing by the door
He fell in love with an Indian maiden over in the antique store

Just stood there and never let it show so she could never answer yes or no

He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tommy-hawk
The maiden wore her beads & braids and hoped someday he'd talk

Too stubborn to ever shown a sign because his heart is made of knotty pine

Kaw-Liga was a lonely Indian, never went nowhere
His heart was set on the Indian maid with the coal coal coal black hair

Just stood there and never let it show, so she could never answer yes or no

And then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid
And took her oh so far away, but old Kaw-Liga stayed

Just stands there as lonely as can be and wishes he was still an old pine tree

Poor old Kaw-Liga, he never got a kiss
Poor old Kaw-Liga, he don't know what he missed

Is it any wonder that his face is red?
Kaw-Liga, that poor old wooden head
