div
 

Chi Chi Lang Hi kept a chinese launderee
He went to a big revue, and the Tango there he saw them do
Said to wifee, 'Tell-ee what! velly good idea I got
Girlee turn the mangle, no, no, me teach them the Tangle,' and so

Chorus: Chi Chi Lang Hi taught his girls the Chinese Tangle
Chi Chi Lang Hi taught them in his way
'Get a girlee, give a squeezee, velly easy, bend the kneesee
Almost to the ground, pretendee that you fallee down
But no fallee down, simplee glidee, slipee, slidee,
Then when you legs velly much tango got
Oh, simplee stand and wriggle-wriggle
Makee all the ladies giggle,
Then you can do the Chinese Tango Trot.

Chi Chi Lang Hi got booked on the music halls
Got there thro' his 'Tango' do, in an up-to-date West End Revue
Said to wifee, 'Tellee what! customers can go to pot
All the men feel velly hurt, they'll have to go with dirty shirt.
Because,

Chorus: Chi Chi Lang Hi taught his girls the Chinese Tango
Chi Chi Lang Hi taught them in his way
'Get a girlee, give a squeezee, velly easy, bend the kneesee
Almost to the ground, pretendee that you fallee down
But no fallee down, simplee glidee, slipee, slidee,
Then when your legs velly much tangle got
Oh, simplee stand and wriggle-wriggle
Makee all the ladies giggle,
Then you can do the Chinese Tango Trot.
