(Original Key: F)


Intro:

D  G  Asus4  A, D, A7

Verse 1:

D
 Take a pinch of white man,
G
 Wrap it up in black skin,
A                          A7
 Add a touch of blue blood,
                              D           G  A  G
And a little bitty bit of Red Indian boy.

Verse 2:

D                    D7
 Curly Latin kinkies,
G                           G7
 Mixed with yellow Chinkees,
       A                     A7
If you lump it all together,
                                D
Well, you've got a recipe for a get-along scene;
G                     A
 Oh, what a beautiful dream,
                                A7
If it could only come true, you know, you know.

Chorus 1:

D        G         A                 G
 What we need is a great big melting pot,
D      G                 A                  G
 Big e-nough to take the world and all it's got.
        D              G                A
Keep it stirring for a hundred years or more,
             G                             D
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score.

Interlude:

D  C  Bm  A

Verse 3:

D
 Rabbis and the friars,
G
 Bishops and the Gurus,
           A                       A7
We got the Beatles, or the Sun God,
Well, it really doesn't matter,
        D                  G      A   G
What re-ligion you choose, no, no no, ooh.

Verse 4:

D                        D7
 Mick and Lady Faithfull,
    G               G7
Or... Mrs. Graceful,
              A                         A7
You know that livin' could be tasteful,
                                D
We should all get together in a lovin' machine,
G                     A
 I better call up the Queen,
                                   A7
It's only fair that she knows, you know, you know.

Chorus 2:

D        G         A                 G
 What we need is a great big melting pot,
D      G                 A                  G
 Big e-nough to take the world and all it's got.
        D              G                A
Keep it stirring for a hundred years or more,
             G                             D      A7
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score.

Chorus 3:

D        G         A                 G
 What we need is a great big melting pot,
      D                        G
Big e-nough, big enough, big e-nough,
            A                  G
To take the world and all it's got.
        D              G                A
Keep it stirring for a hundred years or more,
             G                             D      A7
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score.
