A kid sits down at a drum,
Holding a drumstick in between
his index finger and thumb.
The elder tells him to follow his lead.
BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, he strikes the drum.

The others pick up the beat,
The heartbeat is heard within thee.
A voice sings to the sky,
Wãnna Wãcipi!!!!
"Come Dance" in Dakota is what it means.

Feathers shake and bells ring,
To the beat of the drum is what they are following.
Sage and cedar fill the air,
This is a special place,
The kid is happy, happy that he is here.
