THE CHINESE LAUNDRYMAN
 
div
 
Don't think I'm a Peking atrocity,
I don't bear you any animosity
My wife takes in washing and
Trade just now is not so very grand
The Chinese Laundry's come next door
And took our biz away
So I've to be Chinese too
And dress like this each day.

Chorus: Ching, ching, Chinaman, I'm a clothes refiner man
Hang 'em on the line-man in the little laundry
Ching, ching, Chinaman, I'm a clothes refiner man.


Pigeon English I've got to chatter much
No one understands, so that doesn't matter much
When their clothes get spoiled I smile
Tell them that's the latest Chinese style
The small boys follow me about
And play their little tricks
And the girls throw me sly glances
But the kids throw me half-bricks.

Chorus: Ching, ching, Chinaman, I'm a clothes refiner man
Hang 'em on the line-man in the little laundry
Ching, ching, Chinaman, I'm a clothes refiner man.
