The Lyrics

this is for the chinese food contest.
All around new york
One thing's the same
They think its fun to chow
On shrimp lo mein

Came from the east
Went across lots of water
Now you can eat
What everybody oughtta

If you don't like hot
Food I'll tell you now
Stay away
From General Tso

Some boneless spare ribs
Just went on my plate
There's no doubt
They are really great

I know, I know for sure
There is good Chinese food around new york
I know, I know that's true
You say Gai Pan and then I say moo goo

It is always nice
To get a whole pint of
Chicken fried rice

Unless you
Are really dumb
You'll eat an egg roll
Or you'll order dim sum

When you are there
I think you should make a
Stop at a
Take out place in Jamaica

I like my rice
Either white or brown not fried
Just like they do
In the upper west side

I know, I know for sure
There is good Chinese food around new york
I know, I know that's true
You say Gai Pan and then I say moo goo

If you wanna get
Lots of food from the east
Come and follow me
we'll have a feast

We can eat
Some real good food all day
If we get our
Chinese food through a buffet

Oh my I do
Like wonton soup
See guys eating it
On a Staten Island stoop

Around new york
It took me ages
Ate at all
The Chinese food places

I know, I know for sure

I know I know its true

For 2 years I have done nothing
But its all good you see
My fortune cookie said
Much good will come to me

I know, I know its true

You say gai pan and then I say moo goo
