Subject: Know this song?

Written By: Harmonica on 04/05/05 at 7:49 pm

I think the song is about an indian or a group of indians. I don't remember, but I think I saw indians in the music video.

I have no idea what they're actually saying but it sounds something like this.

"hey Coalina! Hey Coalina! Oh a Hey Coalina Hey Coalina...well a hey coalina....(this part is way off) wap wap a top toppa una coppa"

Sounds a *lot* like a cover of "Cherokee Boogie", originally by Johnny Horton in 1959.
I don't have the cover, but I do have the original handy. 

Starting with:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=lyrics+johnny+horton+cherokee+boogie&btnG=Search

I got a set of posted lyrics and added .

I always sang it "Hey ho Helena, ho ho, na-witchen-eye-aay!", but there was a running gag about a lawyer named Helena when I first heard the song.  Your mileage may vary. 

Well, A Cherokee chief as he dances along
He does an Indian boogie to a white man's song
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "hey-ho-a-lina wup-wup a-wittena-yea"

Well, he dances over here and he dances over there
And he keeps on a dancin' everywhere

Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "hey-ho-a-lina wup-wup a-wittena-yea"

Well, he dances on the hill and he dances on the rock

But he keeps on shaking that tomohawk
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "hey-ho-a-lina wup-wup a-wittena-yea"

Well, he sings to the hills and he sings to the clouds
And he keeps on singin' so big and proud
A now "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "hey-ho-a-lina wup-wup a-wittena-yea"

Well, he's a Cherokee chief as a you might know
And he keeps on sittin' singing "nuven-yo"
Now "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "hey-ho-a-lina wup-wup a-wittena-yea"

Well, A Cherokee chief as he dances along
He does an Indian boogie to a white man's song
Singin' "Hey-ho-a-lina"
"Hey-ho-a-lina"
A well a "hey-ho-a-lina wup-wup a-wittena-yea"

You are thinking of The Sunscreen Song by Baz Luhrnmann, originally from a column by Mary Schmich.

The exact lyric in the song is:

"Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't.
Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't.
Maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the "Funky Chicken" on your 75th wedding anniversary."
