Colored Spade - Galt MacDermot, Gerome Ragni, James Rado

    I'm a
    Colored spade
    A nigger
    A black nigger
    A jungle bunny
    Jigaboo coon
    Pickaninny mau mau

    Uncle Tom
    Aunt Jemima
    Little Black Sambo

    Cotton pickin'
    Swamp guinea
    Junk man
    Shoeshine boy

    Elevator operator
    Table cleaner at Horn & Hardart
    Slave voodoo
    Ubangi lipped

    Flat nose
    Tap dancin'
    Resident of Harlem

    And president of
    The United States of Love
    President of
    The United States of Love

    (if you're gonna invite this man to dinner, you're gonna have to feed him)

    Hominy grits
    An' shortnin' bread
    Alligator ribs
    Some pig tails
    Some black eyed peas
    Some chili
    Some collard greens

    And if you don't watch out
    This boogie man will get you
