Crazy Horse, they are selling your memories.
They are selling your memory
and ownership of your legacy.
The gavel comes slamming down,
pieces of your life passed around.

Crazy Horse, oh Crazy Horse,
your heritage sold without remorse,
Your spirit cries from the ground,
pieces of your life passed around.

Your heart-shaped stone pendant,
should be given to a descendant,
not fondled to an auctioneer's sound,
pieces of your life passed around.

Thašuŋka Witko, Thašuŋka Witko,
greedy buyer's eyes stare aglow,
as the sellers vastly expound,
pieces of your life passed around.
