We shall live again, we shall live

What is it children that falls from the sky?
Tayi, taya, tayi, aye, aye
Man from heaven from the most high
Food from the father, tayi, taye, aye

We shall live again, we shall live again
We shall live again; shake out the ghost dance

Peace to your brother; give and take peace
Tayi, taya, it leaves two feet
One foot extended, snake to the ground
Wave up the earth, one turn around

We shall live again, we shall live again
We shall live again; shake out the ghost dance

Stretch out your arms, now tip and swing
Rude up thy bird, tayi, tayi
Threw out your shoe over the soil
Dust off the words that shaped from the tale

We shall live again, we shall live again
We shall live again; shake out the ghost dance

Here we are, father, lord, holy ghost
Bread of your bread, ghost of your host
We are the tears that fall from your eyes
Word of your word, cry of your cry

We shall live again, we shall live again
We shall live again

What is it, father, in your eye?
What is this wisdom, eyes of God
That makes me feel just what I need?
You used to fly me the way to speed

What is it, father, holy that night?
What is it, father, that moves to the right?
What is it, father, that is waiting in heaven?
What is it, father, that shapes from your hand?
What is it, father, that makes me spin around?
What is it, father, that brings me down?
What is it, father? You can't tell what I like?
What is it, father? I just ride into space
What is it, father? I can tell you one night
What is it, father? I can tell what I like
What is it, father? Are you into shape?
What is it, father? Are you calling today?
What is it, father?
