Songs Lyrics / Peter Pan / What makes the red man red? - English version / Wilfried's Disney Database Peter Pan
English version
Lyric writter: Sammy Cahn
Composer: Sammy Fain
Singer: Candy Candido
Why does he ask you, "How?"
Why does he ask you, "How?"
Once the Injun didn’t know
All the things that he know now
But the Injun, he sure learn a lot
And it’s all from asking, "How?"

Hana Mana Ganda
Hana Mana Ganda
We translate for you
Hana means what mana means
And ganda means that too

When did he first say, "Ugh!"
When did he first say, "Ugh!"
In the Injun book it say
When the first brave married squaw
He gave out with a big ugh
When he saw his Mother-in-Law

What made the red man red?
What made the red man red?
Let’s go back a million years
To the very first Injun prince
He kissed a maid and start to blush
And we’ve all been blushin’ since

You’ve got it from the headman
The real true story of the red man
No matter what’s been written or said
Now you know why the red man’s red!
