“Melting Pot” released by Blue Mink

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

Mm, curly latin kinkies
Mixed with yellow Chinkees
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 stirring for a hundred years or more
And turn out coffee-coloured people by the score
Yeah, Lord

Rabbis and the Friars
Bishops and the Gurus
You got the Beatles or the Sun God – it’s true
Well, it really doesn’t matter
What religion you choose
No no no – ooh

Mick and Lady Faithfull
Lord and Mrs. Graceful
You know the living could be tasteful
Oh, we should all get together in a lovin’ machine
I’d better call up the Queen
It’s only fair that she knows
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 stirring for a hundred years or more
And turn out coffee-coloured people by the score

Yeah, what we need
What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough to take the world and all it’s got
Keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
And turn out coffee-coloured people by the score

Yeah, yeah, yeah
What we need is a great big melting pot ….
