Once in China there lived a great man
His name was Chickaracka chichichan
His legs were long and his feet were small
Chinese man couldn't walk at all.

Chickaracka chichi cho chicka lorum
pum tick a lorum paddy waddy wack
Oklo oklo iddy by iddy by
she backo

Chinese men used to carry him about
upon their backs so he could shout
Here he comes and there he goes
Chinese man with the handsome nose
