THE RICKETY RICKSHAW MAN (Ervin M. Drake) Eddy Howard & His Orch. - 1946 Les Elgart & His Orch. - 1946 Geraldo & His Orch. (vocal: Carole Carr) - 1947 There's a coolie name o' Chulee Runs a rickety rickshaw south of Peking He goes a clippety-clop-clop Clippety-clop-clop As he hobbles down the cobble stoned street He's romantic and his antics are the Talk of the girlies south of Peking Their hearts go flippety-flop-flop Flippety-flop-flop As he hobbles down the cobble stoned street For the first quarter of a mile He'll only charge a pretty girl a smile For every quarter after this He'll collect a kiss When the moon is high and ladies sigh The rickety rickshaw comes a creakin' He goes a clippety-clop-clop Clippety-clop-clop As he hobbles down the cobble stoned street (Orchestral Break) Look at him hobble down the cobble stoned street (Orchestral Break) Sure is a hit with all the girls that he meets For the first quarter of a mile He'll only charge a pretty girl a smile For every quarter after this He'll collect a kiss When the moon is high and ladies sigh The rickety rickshaw comes a creakin' He goes a clippety-clop-clop Clippety-clop-clop As he hobbles down the cobble stoned street Running as fast, fast, fast as he can Rickety rickshaw, rickshaw man.
