The Lyrics

drop your rice balls sadly in this bin
swear in chinese, if it don't go in
round eyes, don't you think that it's a sin?
now try to understand.. I speak mandarin

watch your step this china here is mine
oong may chow ya doop wo sami kyne
told you once, now listen close this time
now try to understand. I speak mandarin

have some rice before you walk away
sow hap koo may how shoo kam ho tay
language is the blood of everything
so bleed my life away.. I speak mandarin

falling through the cracks, I have no soul
eating curried rice and three spring rolls
try to talk but how can I begin
you don't know what I say... I speak mandarin

chee chow suk my weenie oot da bak
thanslate this and cut me lots of slack
I insulted you, when you came in
now get back in that plane.. I speak mandarin

BRILLIANT! I love the original (although I've only ever heard it performed by the cast of "Recess" :P) and this parody excels in pacing and fun levels. 5-5-5 from me. P.S. Do the "Chinese" bits mean anything?
