Take a pinch of white man
Wrap him up in black skin
Add a touch of blue blood
And a little bitty-bit of red indian boy..

Curly, black and kinky
Oriental s***
If you lump it all together
Well, you've got a recipe for a get-along scene
Oh what a beautiful dream
If it could only come true
You know, you know..

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough to take the world and all it's got
Keep it stiring for a hundred years or more
Turning out coffee-colored people by the score

Rappers in the fires
Bishops and the gurus
We had the beatles and the sun-gods
A long time ago (it's true)
But then it really didn't matter
What religion you choose
No no no

Mick and lady faithful
And everyone who's graceful
You know the living could be tasteful
Why don't we all get together in a lovin' machine
I'd better call up the queen
It's only fair that she know
You know, you know..

Chorus x 2 (to fade)
