Chinese Maiden's Lament

Me no likee English sailor
When Yankee sailor come ashore.
English sailor plenty money,
Yankee sailor plenty more.
     Yankee sailor call me ducky darling
     English sailor call me Chinese whore,
     Yankee sailor only shag for short time
     English sailor shag forevermore.

Tune: What a Friend We Have in Jesus
From Grey Funnel Lines, Tawney
