"What Makes the Red Man Red?" quotes

The Indians' light-hearted musical number has in more recent times come under fire for its depiction of Native Americans. Hana mana ganda!
We translate for you:
Hana means what mana means
And ganda means that too.

What makes the red man red?
What makes the red man red?
Let's go back a million years
To the very first Injun prince
He kiss a maid and start to blush
And we all been blushin' since.

When did he first say "Ugh?"
When did he first say "Ugh?"
In the Injun book it say
When first brave married squaw
He gave out with heap big "Ugh!"
When he saw his mother-in-law.

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?"
