Well done if it was for the brilliant track during the racism discussion!

Hi Helen,

Yes indeed, it was my choice. With everyone using the phrase "everyone's a little bit racist" I couldn't get the song out of my head!

I'm slightly amazed they played it, but I hope everyone enjoyed it.

It fitted the subject perfectly!

They used to play a lot more in that ilk in the past Ian, I'd like more.

It's not listed on the playlist for today's show Ian.

Can you do the honours with the details please?

It was called "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist" from the soundtrack to Avenue Q. Music & Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx.

The CD (also available on iTunes) contains the original Broadway cast recording, but it's well worth seeing the show live in London - midweek tickets are quite cheap. It's a bit rude, though, and is basically an adult version of Sesame Street with humans and puppets living side-by-side.

It's 2 years since I got Stuart Maconie (sitting in for Ken Bruce) to play a song from Wicked so in 2010 I'll get Steve Wright to play a song from Lord of the Rings...

I couldn't resist looking up the lyrics... Rolling Eyes

Princeton: Say, Kate, can I ask you a question?
Kate Monster: Sure!
Princeton: Well, you know Trekkie Monster upstairs?
Kate Monster: Uh huh.
Princeton: Well, he's Trekkie Monster, and you're Kate Monster.
Kate Monster: Right.
Princeton: You're both Monsters.
Kate Monster: Yeah.

Princeton: Are you two related?
Kate Monster: What?! Princeton, I'm surprised at you! I find that racist!
Princeton: Oh, well, I'm sorry! I was just asking!
Kate Monster: Well, it's a touchy subject. No, not all Monsters are related. What are you trying say, huh? That we all look the same to you? Huh, huh, huh?

Princeton: No, no, no, not at all. I'm sorry, I guess that was a little racist.
Kate Monster: I should say so. You should be much more careful when you're talking about the sensitive subject of race.
Princeton: Well, look who's talking!
Kate Monster: What do you mean?
Princeton: What about that special Monster School you told me about?
Kate Monster: What about it?
Princeton: Could someone like me go there?
Kate Monster: No, we don't want people like you!
Princeton: You see?! You're a little bit racist.
Kate Monster: Well, you're a little bit too.
Princeton: I guess we're both a little bit racist.
Kate Monster: Admitting it is not an easy thing to do...
Princeton: But I guess it's true.
Kate Monster: Between me and you, I think everyone's a little bit racist Sometimes. Doesn't mean we go around committing hate crimes. Look around and you will find no one's really color blind. Maybe it's a fact we all should face, everyone makes judgments based on race.
Princeton: Now not big judgments, like who to hire
or who to buy a newspaper from -
Kate Monster: No!
Princeton: No, just little judgments like thinking that Mexican busboys should learn to speak goddamn English!
Kate Monster: Right!
Both: Everyone's a little bit racist today. So, everyone's a little bit racist Okay!
Ethinic jokes might be uncouth, but you laugh because
they're based on truth. Don't take them as personal attacks. Everyone enjoys them - So relax!

Princeton: All right, stop me if you've heard this one.
Kate Monster: Okay!
Princeton: There's a plan going down and there's only
one paracute. And there's a rabbi, a priest...
Kate Monster: And a black guy!
Gary Coleman: Whatchoo talkin' 'bout Kate?
Kate Monster: Uh...
Gary Coleman: You were telling a black joke!
Princeton: Well, sure, Gary, but lots of people tell black jokes.
Gary Coleman: I don't.
Princeton: Well, of course you don't - you're black!
But I bet you tell Polack jokes, right?
Gary Coleman: Well, sure I do. Those stupid Polacks!
Princeton: Now, don't you think that's a little racist?
Gary Coleman: Well, damn, I guess you're right.
Kate Monster: You're a little bit racist.
Gary Coleman: Well, you're a little bit too.
Princeton: We're all a little bit racist.
Gary Coleman: I think that I would have to agree with you.
Princeton/Kate Monster: We're glad you do.
Gary Coleman: It's sad but true! Everyone's a little bit racist - All right!
Kate Monster: All right!
Princeton: All right!
Gary Coleman: All right! Bigotry has never been exclusively white.

All: If we all could just admit that we are racist a little bit, Even though we all know that it's wrong, maybe it would help us get along.

Princeton: Oh, Christ do I feel good.
Gary Coleman: Now there was a fine upstanding black man!
Princeton: Who?
Gary Coleman: Jesus Christ.
Kate Monster: But, Gary, Jesus was white.
Gary Coleman: No, Jesus was black.
Kate Monster: No, Jesus was white.
Gary Coleman: No, I'm pretty sure that Jesus was black-
Princeton:
Guys, guys...Jesus was Jewish!
Brian: Hey guys, what are you laughing about?
Gary Coleman: Racism!
Brian: Cool.

Christmas Eve: BRIAN! Come back here! you take out lecycuraburs!
Princeton: What's that mean?
Brian: Um, recyclables. Hey, don't laugh at her!
How many languages do you speak?
Kate Monster: Oh, come off it, Brian! Everyone's a little bit racist.
Brian: I'm not!
Princeton: Oh no?
Brian: Nope! How many Oriental wives have you got?

Christmas Eve: What? Brian!

Princeton: Brian, buddy, where you been?
The term is Asian-American!

Christmas Eve: I know you are not intending to be, But calling me oriental is offensive to me!
Brian: I'm sorry, honey, I love you.
Christmas Eve: And I love you.
Brian: But you're racist, too.
Christmas Eve: Yes, I know. The Jews have all the money and the whites have all The power. And I'm always in taxi-cab with a driver who has no shower!
Princeton: Me too!
Kate Monster: Me too!
Gary Coleman: I can't even get a taxi!
All: Everyone's a little bit racist - It's true.
But everyone is just about as racist as you! If we all could just admit that we are racist a little bit, and everyone stopped being so PC, maybe we could live in harmony!

Christmas Eve: Evlyone's a ritter bit lacist!
