A Shovel called a spade is vile and racist. So is the card game Spades.
Along with "Hair" (1968):

Colored Spade

I'm a colored spade
A negro, 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 and Hardart
Slave voodoo, zombie
Ubangi lipped
Flat nose, tap dancin'
Resident of Harlem
And president of The United States of Love
President of The United States of Love

You invite this man to dinner
You're gonna have to feed him
Watermelon, hominy grits
An' shortnin' bread
Alligator ribs and pig tails
Some Black Eyed Peas
Hot Chilies
Some watermelon hominy grits
An' shortnin' bread, alligator ribs
Black Eyed Peas
Collard greens

And if you don't watch out
The boogie man will get you
Did you hear what he said about the boogie man?
That guy has got to be outta his mind
I think he said boogie man, that sure is nasty
Ha, so you say
