IN BLINKY, WINKY, CHINKY CHINATOWN (Music: Jean Schwartz / Lyrics: William Jerome) The Peerless Quartet - 1915 Vic Berton & His Orch. (vocal: Chick Bullock) - 1935 Lights of blinky, winky Chinatown They brightly burn for those who yearn Sunshine in that land of no return What a great big lesson you can learn See that girl with dreamy, dreamy eye Hear her sigh as she goes passing by Take me down to blinky, winky, chinky Chinatown Where the lights are burning when the Sun goes down Down where dreamy dreamers dream sweet dreams In that land of gladness, picking little poppies there among the hoppies There's no tomorrow, sorrow, grief and care Oriental angels whisper, "Take me there" Ah Sing with his little pigtail wears no frown Down in blinky, winky, chinky Chinatown See that sallow, shallow looking youth With no regrets, but lots of debts Life to him is merely cigarettes What he used to be he just forgets On the corner see this son of Hop Wink his eye and whisper to the cop Take me down to blinky, winky, chinky Chinatown Where the lights are burning when the Sun goes down Down where dreamy dreamers dream sweet dreams In that land of gladness, picking little poppies there among the hoppies There's no tomorrow, sorrow, grief and care Oriental angels whisper, "Take me there" Ah Sing with his little pigtail wears no frown Down in blinky, winky, chinky Chinatown (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2014)
