Sweet and Sour pork, Chicken Chow Mien,

Fried rice and prawns, ...combination number  three.

It was my favorite late night dinner,

 Before anyone ever heard of  MSG.

There was no such thing as melamine,
We always took the chopsticks home,

So the ones at Wongs was clean

He grew his own bean sprouts.

About where I spend my money,

If I keep it close,

 It might come back to me!
