Mrs. Meers:
Everything seems lovely
when you start to roam.
The birds are singing
the day that you stray,
but wait until you are farther away.
Things won't be so lovely,
when you're all alone.
Here's what you'll keep saying
when you're far from home.

Bun Foo:
Muqin [Mammy.]

Mrs. Meers:
That's right

Ching ho:
Muqin [Mammy.]

Mrs. Meers:
Now you're talking.

Bun Foo:
Taiyang zhao dong fang.
[The sun shines east.]

Ching Ho:
Taiyan zhao xi fang.
[The sun shines west.]

Mrs. Meers:
But you know where "taiyang zhao" best.

Bun Foo:
Zhao dao, zhao dao muqin ta shenshang.
[On Mammy.]

Ching Ho:
Zhao wo, zhao wo muqin ta shenshang.
[My mammy.]

Ching Ho & Bun Foo:
wode xin yongyuan wang jiaxiang.
[My heart strings are tangled around Siam-y.]

Ching Ho:
Wo lailiao. Buren yao nin duo dengdai.
[I'm coming. Sorry that I made you wait.]

Mrs. Meers:
Take her home!

Bun Foo:
Wo lailiao. Wanle kongpa nin buzai.
[I'm coming. I hope and pray I'm not too late.]

Mrs. Meers:
It's never too late for:

Mrs. Meers, Ching Ho, & Bun Foo:
Mammy.
Mammy.

Ching Ho & Bun Foo:
wo yuen zou baiwan li kan ni xiaomimi.
[we'd walk a million miles for one of those smiles.]

Mrs. Meers, Ching Ho, & Bun Foo:
My Mammy.

Ching Ho:
wo yuen zou baiwan li kan ni xiaomimi.
[I'd walk a million miles for one of those smiles.]

Bun Foo:
Wo yibei fanzui yebu haipa.
[we'll lead a life of crime to buy us some time.]

Mrs. Meers:
They'll work for Mrs. Meers
the rest of their years!

Mrs. Meers, Ching Ho, & Bun Foo:
My Mammy!!
