Thread Name: Origins: Ching Chong Chinaman Song
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ching Chung Chinaman Song
Digressing, but English slang has become pretty well universal wherever English is spoken. Hot cock is widespread (several meanings, from eager to the real stuff to the clap and others, rooting is a common mis-use of rutting (pigs do both), and it takes pages to cover all of the meanings of jack, from an insult to money to penis to heroin to gull- to whatever.

Although the doggeral reminded me of current use of ching-chong in rap, there is none of the rap form there. My remark was not correct.
