Description

You know this language that I speak, Is part German, Latin and part Greek Celtic and Arabic all in a heap, Well amended by the people in the street Choctaw gave us the word "okay"; "Vamose" is a word from Mexico way. And all of this is a hint I suspect of what comes next. [Chorus:] I think that this whole world Soon mama my whole wide world Soon mama my whole world Soon gonna be gettin' mixed up.. I like Polish sausage, I like Spanish rice, And pizza pie is also nice Corn and beans from the Indians here Washed down by German beer Marco Polo traveled by camel and pony, He brought to Italy, the first macaroni And you and I as well as we're able, We put it all on the table [Chorus] There were no red-headed Irishmen Before the Vikings landed in Ireland How many Romans had dark curly hair Before they brought slaves from Africa? No race of man is completely pure, Nor is anyone's mind, that's for sure The winds mix the dust of every land, And so will woman and man. [Chorus] This doesn't mean we will all be the same, We'll have different faces and different names Long live many different kinds of races It's difference of opinion that makes horse races Just remember the rule about rules, brother What could be right for one could be wrong for the other And take a tip from La Belle France: "Viva la difference!" [Chorus]×2
