Question n. cree tune

hi all!
i need some help figuring out some words to a northern cree song.
there's one song a few of us were trying to figure out.
now i know this is almost dumb to ask the question b/c i don't even know the title of the song, but just a few words is all we need.

so i'm going to use phonetical spelling here:

my friend says they say "bay twana" where i swear it's "may kwana." i think i had read somewhere that "mekwana" (sp?) means something about keeping in time to the music or bells or something.
are we close?

ok, if anyone can help us out and settle this bet, we'd appreciate it.
