Song: Buffalo Boy
Lyrics by: Jackie Bird
Instrumental: Gordon Bird
Song Compositions: Gordon Bird and Jackie Bird
 
Granted soul, where do I go
I see a world in need of help
Little red buffalo, won’t you come with me?

Here I am, newborn child
It’s cuz of you I’m buffalo boy
Little red buffalo, hey what do you feel?

Listen to the trees, here’s what they say
The land’s becoming dangerous
Newborn child, here’s what we must do

Teach the old ways, share the knowledge
For all are part of the universe
Newborn child, that’s what we must do

Granted soul
Oh, oh, oh

We are the ancestors, returning to you
We are all from the past
Little red buffalo, we were born together

Granted soul, now here we go
Reminding all our relatives

 
Song: This Is Your Moment
Lyrics by: JoAnne Bird
Instrumental: Gordon Bird
Song Compositions: Gordon Bird and Jackie Bird
You can do what you think you can do
You can go where you think you can go
You can be what you think you can be
Like an eagle, you can be free

(chorus)
This is your moment
This is your time
Love one another
Give all the time

Go out and greet the morning sun
For it’s time we all know we are one
What you believe in your heart you will be
Like an eagle, you can be free
