Verse 1

I went to China
They have carnival over there
My trip to China
Showed me things I was unaware
Strange enough the things I see
Today still keep haunting me
Their music I heard
Have me totally lost for words


(This is what I heard in
China in ah party way over there
Everybody singing this song 
Wong Long Pong Chong) x2

Verse 2

This thing get to me 
It have me going bazodee
Chinese ever more
Wall to wall they on the dance floor
Suddenly they start again
Singing this Chinese refrain
It sounding so good 
So ah start singing where I could


Verse 3

I now realize that de people was in disguise 
Some playing peacock 
And another playing ah duck
Suddenly de dragon came
And they start to worship him
I say not at all
And ah walk out of de dance hall

Chorus x2
