Reviews:
It's effing scary how relevant this fun little tune has become. If anything, the world today is even more crackers than when I first heard this song at the end of 1980. At the time, Idle's line about "fools and idiots sitting on the trigger" was just a cynical Cold War stab, but today, the trigger really is sat on by genuine idiots chosen by no one....just like in China. Psychotic trigger happy idiots...just like in China. If only they would be "always friendly and ready to please". No such luck. Maybe, all things considered, learning a little Chinese isn't such a bad idea, considering the way things are going. All together: Wo ai Zhong guo ren...

(It should be mentioned that this review was written before 2009. But the ultimate enemy from the East still awaits...)

Facts:
  • Population update: as of 8/8/08, 1.3 billion Chinese, instead of only 900 million. (Tim P. Ryan)
  • Posted here is the "Contractual Obligation Album" version. The "Monty Python Sings" version has the same lyrics with different background sound effects. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • The lyrics to the Chinese verse: "Wo ai Zhong guo ren. Wo ai Zhong guo ren. Wo ai Zhong guo ren. Ni hao ma. Ni hao ma. Ni hao ma. Zhaijien.", roughly translates to- "I like Chinese. I like Chinese. I like Chinese. How are you? How are you? How are you? Goodbye!" "Ni hao" is also a general greeting, like "hello". It's a good idea to learn it now.... (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    The world today seems absolutely crackers
    With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high
    There's fools and idiots sitting on the trigger
    It's depressing and it's senseless and that's why...


    I like Chinese
    I like Chinese
    They only come up to your knees
    yet they're always friendly
    and they're ready to please

    I like Chinese (cork popping)
    I like Chinese ("liquid pouring into glass" sound)
    There's 900 million of them
    in the world today
    You'd better learn to like them
    That's what I say

    I like Chinese
    I like Chinese
    They come from a long way overseas
    but they're cute and they're cuddly
    and they're ready to please

    I like Chinese food
    The waiters never are rude
    Think of the many things
    they've done to impress
    There's Maoism, Taoism, I Ching and chess

    So I like Chinese (tap dancing sound)
    I like Chinese
    I like their tiny little trees
    Their Zen, their ping-pong,
    their yin and yang-ese

    I like Chinese thought
    The wisdom that Confucius taught
    If Darwin is anything to shout about
    The Chinese will survive us all
    without any doubt

    So, I like Chinese
    I like Chinese
    They only come up to your knees
    yet they're wise and they're witty
    and they're ready to please

    All together..
    Wo ai Zhong-guo ren
    Wo ai Zhong-guo ren
    Wo ai Zhong-guo ren
    Ni Hao Ma? Ni Hao Ma? Ni Hao Ma? Zhaijien


    I like Chinese
    I like Chinese
    Their food is guaranteed to please
    a fourteen, a seven, a nine and lychees

    I like Chinese
    I like Chinese
    I like their tiny little trees
    Their Zen, their ping-pong
    their yin and yang-ese


    I like Chinese.....

    According to Google Translate, Mad Music Archive translates to



    which according to Google Translate translates back to Crazy Music Files. Sorry I can't help you with the pinyin. I believe urls are done in Western characters.

    If you're going to do it, you might as well do it right. Right? btw I don't know the language, so any corrections would be appreciated! (The extra speckles that were in the image before have now been fixed.)
