Lyr Add: All Mixed Up (Pete Seeger)

DigiTrad:
BIG MUDDY
DON'T ASK WHAT A RIVER IS FOR
FLOWERS OF PEACE
I MIND MY OWN BUSINESS
MY GET UP AND GO HAS GOT UP AND WENT
MY OLD BROWN EARTH
OH, HAD I A GOLDEN THREAD
OLD DEVIL TIME
ONE GRAIN OF SAND
PRECIOUS FRIEND
QUITE EARLY MORNING
SAILING DOWN MY DIRTY STREAM
SAILING DOWN MY GOLDEN RIVER
SOUR CREAM
TURN, TURN, TURN or TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON
WALKING DOWN DEATH ROW
WELL MAY THE WORLD GO

Went looking for the lyrics and didn't find them here! So here they are. Certainly a song that should elicit discussion both on philosophic and historic paths.

Lyrics as printed in the liner notes of Pete.


ALL MIXED UP

Words by Pete Seeger, music from "Woman Tawry Lang," collected, adapted, & arranged by Louise Bennett Coverly.
Tune borrowed from a Caribbean melody.
Copyright 1965 (renewed) by Stormking Music, Inc.
Released on Seeger's Pete in 1996.

1. You know this language that we speak
Is part German, part Latin and part Greek
With some Celtic and Arabic and Scandinavian all in the heap,
Well amended by the people in the street.
Choctaw gave us the word Okay.
Vamoose 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 get mixed up.

2. I like Polish sausage. I like Spanish rice.
Pizza pie is also nice.
Corn and beans from the Indians here,
Washed down by some German beer.
Marco Polo travelled by camel and pony,
Brought to Italy, the first macaroni,
And you and I as well we're able,
Put it all on the table. CHORUS TWICE

3. There were no redheaded Irishmen
Before the Vikings landed in Ireland.
How many Romans had dark curly hair
Before they brought slaves from Africa?
No race on earth 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. CHORUS

4. Oh, this doesn't mean we must all be the same.
We'll have different faces and different names.
Long live many different kinds of races,
And difference of opinion; that makes horse races.
Just remember the rule about rules, brother:
"What's right with one is wrong with another."
And take a tip from La Belle France:
"Vive la différence." CHORUS TWICE
