Thread Name: Origins: Ching Chong Chinaman Song
Subject: ADD: Ching Chong Chinaman Song
I did a field recording of an anonymous singer who called from Australia. He sang the following bawdy song

           Ching-Chung Chinaman  Size: 166KB  Time: 0:55

Does anyone else remember versions of this song (see lyrics below)? If yes, would you be willing to sing it for me? You can reach me at

I collect bawdy folksongs and if you know any bawdy songs I would like to record them and, if you like, I can make an anonymous recording.

         Ching Chong Chinaman runs a brothel shop
         Him afraid, lose his trade, they all got the pox
         Now he broke, now we joke, while he shut his shop
         Ching Chong Chinaman, a lot of hot cockĀ 

   Chinaman had twenty women working for him there
   Some root on the floor, some root on the chair
   Then one night they got stopped, Police'ee' man he come
   Saw what was going on and join in the fun

   Chinaman had torture room on the second floor
   Some liked to be whipped and chained by a whore
   And he's got a hay-bed and a water-bed too
   To ad that little extra to your screw

   This story may not seem very real to you
   If you're feeling down and out and you need a screw
   Go to China's place but when you get back
   Be sure that while you're there, you didn't get the JACK
