"A Horse With No Name"

(As recorded by America)
DEWEY BUNNELL

On the first part of the journey, I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things,
There were sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz and the sky, with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry but the air was full of sound

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert, you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la

After two days in the desert sun, my skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed made me sad to think it was dead

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert, you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la

On the ninth day, I let the horse run free 'cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things, there were sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with its life underground and the perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground but the humans will give no love

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name,
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert, you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la
