All Mixed Up - Lyrics

You know this language that we speak
Is part German, Latin and part Greek
Celtic and Arabic all in a heap
Well amended by the people in the street

The 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

I think that this whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get mixed up

Soon mama, my whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get 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

A Marco Polo traveled by camel and pony
He brought to Italy, the first macaroni
And you and I as well we're able
We put it all on the table

I think that this whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get mixed up

Soon mama, my whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get mixed up

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, and that's for sure
The winds mix the dust of every land
And so will woman and man

I think that this whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get mixed up

Soon mama, my whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get mixed up

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 a difference of opinion that makes horse races

Just remember the rule about rules, brother
What's right for one could be wrong for the other
And take a tip from La Belle France
Viva la difference

I think that this whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get mixed up

Soon mama, my whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get mixed up

Soon mama, my whole world
Soon mama, my whole wide world
Soon mama, my whole world
Soon gonna be get mixed up
