Steady as the Beating Drum is the introductory song for the Indians in Disney's Pocahontas.

Lyrics

Native Americans:
Hega hega yam-pi-ye-hega
Yam-pi-ye-ne-he hega
Hega hega yam-pi-ye-hega
Yam-pi-ye-ne-he hega

Steady as the beating drum
Singing to the cedar flute
Seasons Go and seasons Come
Bring the corn and bear the fruit

By the waters sweet and clean
Where the mighty sturgeon lives
Plant the squash and reap the bean
All the earth our mother gives

O Great Spirit, hear our song
Help us keep the ancient ways
Keep the sacred fire strong
Walk in balance all our days

Seasons go and seasons come
Steady as the beating drum
Plum to seed to bud to plum
(Hega hega yam-pi-ye hega)
Steady as the beating drum
Hega hega yam-pi-ye-hega
Yam-pi-ye-ne-he hega

Reprise

Chief Powhatan:
As the river cuts his path
Though the river's proud and strong
He will choose the smoothest course
That's why river's live so long
They're steady
As the steady beating drum
