Snagging

[html5mp3small:6289]

If Pow-wow boys get all the girls
Then Pow-wow girls must rule the world
With fire in your eyes
You’ll be snagging!

A two step dance may do ya
Or you might see him singing a song
If he’s the one who finds you
Go with him — it’s where you belong

One touch and you might scream
One kiss and you might explode
An Indian man supreme
A wonder to behold

CHORUS

If Pow-wow boys get all the girls
Then Pow-wow girls must rule the world
With fire in your eyes
You’ll be snagging!

All throughout the evening
You know you’ll be more than friends
So when the dancing’s over
That’s when the real singing begins

Biggest dark brown eyes
Longest dark black hair
No need to fantasize
Your perfect lover is there

CHORUS

I know it’s not just me
Looky now here comes a pair
Take a look — you’ll see
They’re snagging everywhere!

CHORUS

You’ll be snagging

ABOUT “SNAGGING”

In polite circles, it’s called dating. In not so polite crowds — it’s a fling, one night stand or something ruder. The American Indian pow-wow culture calls it “Snagging.” “It’s always fun to watch people pair off during a pow-wow. There are these things called ’49’s’ after the pow-wow is over. It’s like a rave or after-party. Whatever you want to call it, this song speaks of the love Indian women have for Indian men.”
