The Lyrics

I love Oriental food, and lately I find more and more restaurants feature a combination of Chinese, Korean and Japanese dishes. My personal favorite is Toshi's in Edmonds, WA, where I dine at least once a week. Hope you like the parody - Happy Eating!
VERSE
Call 1-800-CHINA-17 ,
You'll like our little restaurant - We call it New Wong Ling's.
The egg foo young is tasty, and the pork is always lean.
And you'll always find a table if you come by two fourteen.

(We really open at 2:30, but that didn't rhyme)

CHORUS
Our fried wontons keep the customers a-comin'.
There's take-out at the counter, and the line goes out the door.
You like chow mein? - Well, we have pork or chicken,
Wait an hour later, you'll be comin' back for more.

VERSE
Just look down the alley - cats are hangin' 'round the cans,
And the chef at New Wong Ling's is out of chicken once again.
He's Samurai - And he gave his sword a swing.
He's cooking chicken stir-fry, now - but won't tell us a thing.

CHORUS
Our fried wontons keep the customers a-comin'.
There's take-out at the counter, and the line goes out the door.
The teriyaki steak is really something.
Your mouth is gonna water, you'll be comin' back for more.

VERSE
Old hickory wood with the fire blazin' high,
Is the way we cook our shrimpies - you like jumbo butterfly.
We fry in batter, serve them to you ala carte.
You dip 'em in hot mustard, it's enough to make you . . . Start . . .

CHORUS
Fryin' those wontons - the customers are comin'.
The maitre d' will seat you, if you tip him at the door.
We're open late, so get your motor hummin'.
Your mouth is gonna water, you'll be comin' back for more.

BRIDGE
Yeah, we have sweet and sour for your Grande Poo Poo Platter.
And you get Buddha Belly - you're a velly happy Joe (sorry, it rhymed).
We pile so high - plenty food to make you fatter.
So sorry, bathroom broken - You go down to Texaco.

VERSE
The I-N-S came and took us by surprise,
They deported all the busboys, 'cause they didn't have blue eyes.
They grilled me at the griddle, 'til I thought they'd fry my mind.
My chef may be illegal, but, good help is hard to find.

CHORUS
Our fried wontons keep the customers a-comin'.
You pay for dinner later, when you're heading out the door.
We fry once more, 'cause everybody's hungry.
Chow delicious shrimpies, New Wong Ling's will feed you more.

Crunch . . . 2 - 3 - 4 . . . Let's Munch - 3 - 4 . . .
Slurp . . . 2 - 3 - 4 . . . . . Let's Burp - 3 - 4 . . .

I highlighted the Texaco line to cite as my fave as soon as I came to it and wouldn't you know, that incorrigible Johnny D. fellow had already beaten me to it! Loved it, great job, David!

Thank you, my friends. I had a good time writing this one. Incidently, this parody in no way endorses the eating of alley cats.

Come on, now, David, this stuff you ate makes for a parody that's really great. Aw, and ratings of fives do I drop at your gate. The parody is so much fun. You know it's only the egg foo young!

Thank you Michael. The Morristown (NJ) area had some seriously good Chinese food when I was growing up there. The same can be said of the Italian food. I'm convinced the best pizza by far, comes from NY-NJ, especially if hand-tossed and cooked in a coal oven. Not particularly pertinent to the song parody, but hey, it's food.

Very clever, Dave, with lots of great lines! DId you know that there is (or at least was) a Chinese Restaurant in L.A. called Luck Yu? No, really!

Hey David - you were kind enough to read, vote, and comment on my recent parody of Simon and Garfunkel’s “I Am A Rock” called “Leonard Played Spock”, so I’m inviting you to come on over and check out my new parody of “I Am A Rock” called “I Am A Chalk”:
