Martin, Dean - Not Enough Indians Lyrics




Wagon train of lovin' moving slow
And I can see the peace pipe burning low
You criticize each little thing I do
But listen baby, I've got news for you

There's too many chiefs and not enough Indians around this house
Baby I'm tired of this old game we play called cat and mouse
If you don't give just a little bit more
We're both gonna lose this race
'Cause there's too many chiefs and not enough Indians around this place

Trouble on our happy hunting ground
'Cause you keep stepping too far out of bounds
It's hard to run this reservation right
When you stay on the warpath day and night

Well there's too many chiefs and not enough Indians around this house
Baby I'm tired of this old game we play called cat and mouse
If you don't give just a little bit more
We're both gonna lose this race
'Cause there's too many cheifs and not enough Indians around this place

Look at all the things I have to do
To keep this teepee running just for you
Well time's are tough and wampum's hard to save
Just remember who's the squaw and who's the brave

Well there's too many cheifs and not enough Indians around this house
Baby I'm tired of playing this old game called cat and mouse
If you don't give just a little bit more
We're both gonna lose this race
'Cause there's too many cheifs and not enough Indians around this place

    When Elvis was sitting with Dino’s daughter she commented how E is the King of Rock. And Elvis replied and you’re dad is the King of Cool. Yeah. No argument there. And as a big fan of E, E loved Dino to the point Elvis tried to act like him in certain ways.

    Funny. This song was pretty popular amongst the Indigenous Peoples back in the day! It wasn't regarded as "racist" by anyone.

    Having loved Dean Martins music/voice for years. My parent's had Rio Bravo, Angel Baby & Houston in their record collection. 40+ years later & I'm exploring his back catalogue finding gems like this when I bought the Reprise Years. Thanks for sharing

  14. Sam Finoh

    A man would not be allowed to even think this let along sing about it in 2018

    I was wondering this...no clue why my brain added this to my mental play list this morning. Must be the spirit of my late dad.

  15. LEONIDAS

    R I P Mr. Martin ......... Job well done, sir ------

  16. MikeBlitzMag

    Absolute, utter perfection. Dean Martin remains one of the premier interpreters of all time.

    What you have to remember is that Dino is only making an argument that is going to fall on deaf ears. Or get something thrown at him. Didn't work for my father or his father before him. A lot less has changed than people think.

  18. John Stevens

    I remember listening to this gem many years ago on a legendary MOR radio station AM 55 KOY in Phoenix, AZ. Thanks for posting it.

  19. Robert Gorham
