I Like Chinese
(From "Monty Python´s Contractual Obligation Album", 1980.)

Spoken:
The world today is absolutely cracked.
With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high.
There´s fools and idiots sitting on the trigger.
It´s depressing, and it´s senseless, and that´s why...

Singing:
I like chinese,
I like chinese,
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they´re always friendly and they´re ready to please.

I like chinese,
I like chinese,
There´s nine hundred million of them in the world today,
You´d better learn to like them, that´s what I say.

I like chinese,
I like chinese,
They come from a long way overseas,
But they´re cute, and they´re cuddly and they´re ready to please.

I like chinese food,
The waiters never are rude,
Think of the many things they´ve done to impress,
There´s maoism, taoism, eating and chess.

I like chinese,
I like chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their zen, their ping-pong, their yin and yang-eze.

I like chinese thoughts,
The wisdom that Confusious taught,
If Darwin is anything to shout about,
The chinese will survive us all without any doubt.

So, I like chinese,
I like chinese,
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they´re wise, and they´re witty, and they´re ready to please

Wo, I chumba run,
Wo, I chumba run,
Wo, I chumba run,
Ne hamma, Ne hamma, Ne hamma chi chen.

I like chinese,
I like chinese,
Their food is guaranteed to please,
A fourteen, a seven, a nine and li-chese

I like chinese,
I like chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their zen, their ping-pong, their yin and yang-eze.

I like chinese,
I like chinese,
(fade out...)
