The Three Degrees – Melting Pot lyrics

Take a little bit of white man
Wrap him up in black skin
Then you add a touch of blue blood
And a little bitty bit of red indian boy
Ooh, ooh, ooh, Latin curly kinkies
Mm-hmm, mixed with yellow chinkees
If you lump them all together
Well, you got a recipe for a get along scene
What a beautiful dream
You know, you know, you know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough to take the world and all it's got
And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
Turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Oooo...

Rabbis and the friars
Ahhh, the bishops and the gurus
You got the beatles and the sun god
Well, it really doesn't matter what religion you choose
No, no, no
Ooh, ooh, ooh, make a lady faithful
Mm-mm, men and women graceful
You know that livin' could be tasteful
We should all get together in lovin' machine
Don't you know what I mean?
You know, you know, you know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough to take the world and all it's got
And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
Turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Oooo...

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough to take the world and all it's got
And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
Turn out coffee coloured people by the score
Ohh, yeah, what we need

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough, big enough
Big enough to take the world and what it's got
And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more...
