Ching Chong Asians in the Library Song Lyrics

Hopefully, Jimmy Wong will be okay with this, but I was having trouble following the lyrics of the really catching tune he wrote in response to the Asians in the Library.  I decide to write it down in one place so I can sing along to the song.  You can find more of his work here.

"Ching Chong"

I hope one day you can meet,
my mother, brothers, sisters, grandmothers, grandpas and cousins;
Cuz what they're doing on those Friday nights,
is showing me how to cook and dress.
Cuz baby I want to take you out,
and blow your freakin' mind.


You ain't that polite, nice, American girl,
that your momma raised you to be;
So when you reach that epiphany,
Wait, are you freakin kidding me?
If you have an epiphany every single time you study,
that probably means you're doing something wrong;
But I like it when you're wrong.


And underneath the pounds of makeup,
and your baby blue eyes;
I know there's a lot of pain and hurt,
for such a big brain to spend all night studying Poly Sci.

I pick up my phone and sing,
(ching chong) It means I love you;
(ling long) I really want you;
(ting tong) I don't actually know what that means.

(ching chong) It's never ending;
(ling long) My head is spinning;
(ting tong) Still don't know what that means.
