Thread Name: Origins: Ching Chong Chinaman Song
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ching Chong Chinaman Song
interesting comments---

I'm trying to locate the source of a song which i learnt at my Grandmother's knee back in the 40's ( she was born in the 1880's)
The first line of the lyrics start:

   My name is Ling (ching?) I come from China, ickle lickle lupships you see there.

      Any ideas? I would love to solve this mystery before my memory fails completely!!
      Many thanks. "dumpling"
