Here in the middle of an Indian summer
More words offend and it gets dumber
100 years of the "Indian" name
And now all of sudden it brings shame
Cleveland's new name is the "Guardians"
I'm guessing the decision was bipartisan
Yes the Guardians of the MLB
Guardians who will probably take a knee
I guess the name brought so much grief I'm curious now what about the Chiefs?
Really, what names should we save?
No one is offended by the Atlanta Braves?
To other names we don't say goodbye
Look at the Illinois Fighting Illini
And what if Illinois plays Florida State
That Indian tribe name war would bring some hate
What about a Cowboys name battle?
I think their name offends some cattle
Look I'm not trying to expose or tattle
But will they change the name of Seattle?
Tell me why haven't people gotten cranky
And banned the New York Yankees?
What if the name "Angels" causes people to flip out?
Because believing in angels they have doubt
Look I'm not trying to throw some rocks
But I'm offended by the name Red Sox
What if red socks were worn by an Indian chief?
What if hearing that name brings his tribe grief?
What if some are offended by the Rams?
Maybe we should change it to the Lambs
Or they could change it to the Ewe's
These names are getting harder to choose
Coming forward are another 40 whiners
Soon to be offended by the 49ers
It seems our society does not learn We are suffering from an Indian burn
So people listen to every demander
We now live in the Republic of Pander
