Song Lyrics

Lori Lieberman

My grandmother came from Russia
A satchel on her knee
My grandfather had his father's cap
He brought from Italy

They'd heard about the country
Where life might let them win
They paid the fare to America
And there they melted in

Lovely Lady Liberty
With her book of recipes
And the finest one she's got
Is the Great American Melting Pot
The Great American Melting Pot

Charlie Brown

(spoken) America was founded by the English.

Lucy van Pelt

(spoken) But also by the Germans, Spaniards, and French.

Schroeder

(spoken) The principle still sticks: Our heritage is mixed.

Peanuts gang

(spoken) So anyone could be the president.

Lori Lieberman and Peanuts gang

You simply melt right in
It doesn't matter what your skin
It doesn't matter where you're from
Or your religion
You jump right in
To the Great American Melting Pot
The Great American Melting Pot

Lori Lieberman

Ooh, what a stew
Red, white, and blue

America was the new world
And Europe was the old
America was the land of hope
Or so the legend told

On steamboats by the millions
In search of honest pay
Those 19th century immigrants sailed
To reach the U.S.A.

Lori Lieberman and Peanuts gang

Lovely Lady Liberty
With her book of recipes
And the finest one she's got
Is the Great American Melting Pot
The Great American Melting Pot

Lori Lieberman

What good ingredients
Liberty and immigrants

They brought the country's customs
Their language and their ways
They filled the factories
Tilled the soil
Helped build the U.S.A.

Go on and ask you grandma
Hear what she has to tell
How good to be American
And something else as well

Lori Lieberman and Peanuts gang

Lovely Lady Liberty
With her book of recipes
And the finest one she's got
Is the Great American Melting Pot
The Great American Melting Pot (repeat x6)
