CHINKATEE CHUU CHUU PAN

ONCE THERE LIVED A CHINA MAN
HIS NAME WAS CHINKATEE CHUU CHUU PAN
HIS LEGS WERE LONG
HIS FEET WERE SHORT
POOR LITTLE CHINK COULD HARDLY WALK
AT LAST ONE DAY HE DID DIE
AND IN HIS COFFIN HE DID LIE
THEY SENT HIS BODY TO JAPAN
AND THAT WAS THE END OF THE CHINA MAN.
CHINKATEE, CHINKATEE CHUU CHUU PAN
ALA GA WAL A GA, STUN OF A LULA GA
AND THAT WAS THE END OF THE CHINA MAN.
