Redskins
 
Redskins, Redskins, what a beautiful name
Wishing I could call my skin the same
To be given a name to call me brave
A proud banner to battle I would wave
 
Native Americans, your courage I remember
From books my early partiality I surrender
Of how you lived and communed with nature
Wisdom divided into terrestrial nomenclature
 
To have a football team named after you
An honor bestowed to only a few
Those who know how it is to be courageous
Those who live a life among spirited sages
Please don’t ever change your name
Washington Redskins, just play the game
Isn’t football all about pride and courage?
