It wasn’t long ago, you’d see some buffalo
Where did the Indian go? Where did the Indian go?

Time for time to move along
The new river rolls along

And now we grab the skies
We cast an evil eye
We swim in sewer streams
And watch our TV screens

Time for time to move along
The new river rolls along

Not Darth Vader, Space Invader
Cape Crusader, Masturbator
Tax evader, interrogator
Impersonator, alligator

As I closed my eyes
I could fade away inside
I felt so free
It gets away from me

I guess what I want to say
Is let the devil go his way
Every dog has his day
Then the cowboy rides away

Time for time to move along
The new river rolls along

Not Darth Vader, Space Invader
Cape Crusader, Masturbator
Impersonator, interrogator
Tax evader, alligator

And as I drifted down
I was lost in the sound
I felt so free
But it gets away from me

It wasn’t long ago
You’d see some buffalo
Where did the Indian go? Where did the Indian go?
