Kim. Kimmariefreeman@aol.com. I've been looking for the words to "Ara chickera, chickera rooney, Rooney pooney, impy piney,alabala westa, West rooney, ara chicker a Chinese ching" for years! My grand father was from Birkenhead and taught it to us when we were young. He must have learned it in the 1890's??? Does anyone have any other info on it?
