On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rain
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound
 
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 aint no one for to give you no pain
 
la la la -
Fa 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 that 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 aint no one for to give you no pain
 
la la la -
Fa la la la -
 
After nine days I let the horse run free
'Cause the desert had turn to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is desert with it's life underground
And the perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans would 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 aint no one for to give you no pain
 
Fa la la la -
Fa la la la -
Fa la la la -
