I met a man
in China, Mee Laik Sun, a diplomat,
me in the Eastern way of life,
daughter fancied me, the young Mee Phar Too Phat,
why not, and took her for my wife.
She had a
sister, Mee Phat Too, I married her as well,
then set up house in East Taipei,
day I heard somebody ringing on our bell,
it was their
older brother, Mee So Gai.
The four of
us then settled down, one great big family,
we cooked up
rice and noodles every night,
but then a
friend of his moved in, a guy called Mee Bi Kee,
he had a
quite ferocious appetite!
He also had
some biker friends, who came and moved right in,
all day and walked around half-nude,
with Mee Big
Slob and Mee No Wok and great big Mee Laik Jinn
we soon ran
out of money, drink and food!
I saw the
head man at the bank, a bloke called Mee Got Doh,
he told me
there was nothing he could do,
but gave me
the address of someone that he used to know,
dealer known as Mee Kon Yu.
A loan was
what I needed, and he took me out the back,
rate was ninety-nine percent,
but I knew
of a racehorse that was running at the track,
I took his
thousand bucks and off I went.
name was Mee Bet Hi, I bowed and bet the lot,
my horse was
Mee Hung Long, a well-bred bay,
Mee Fro Rais fell off, I felt like I’d been shot,
I’d vowed to
pay the money back next day!
in New Zealand now, I’m poor to say the least,
from now on, no more Chinese,
I had my
fill of China and the lifestyle of the East,
there’s simply way too many Mee’s!
