[spoken]
Ooh, Bennett
Damn girl, you so feisty
You so feisty they should call you
Bennett
Now don't pretend I didn't see you watch me
Talk on my phone yesterday, all sexy
Ching chong wing wong
Baby it's all just code
It's the way I tell the ladies it's time to get funky

[sung]
I hope one day you can meet my
Mother, my brothers, sisters, grandmothers,
grandpas, and cousins
Ooh oh
'Cause what they're really doing on those Friday nights
Is showing me how to cook and dress,
'Cause baby I wanna take you out
And blow your freakin' mind

And underneath the pounds of makeup and your baby blue eyes
I know there's a lot of pain and hurt for such a big brain to
Spend all night studying polisci

I pick up my phone and say

Ching chong, it means I love you
Ling long, I really want you
Ting tong, I don't actually know what that means
Ching chong, it's never ending
Ling long, my head is spinning
Ting tong, still don't know what that means

[Spoken]
Ooh Bennett, I just wanna take my phone out and talk dirty to you all day long
But I know you're busy cramming all those big hard theories and arguments.

[Sung]
You ain't that polite, nice American girl your momma raised you to be
So when you reach that epiphany--

--Wait, are you freakin' kiddin' me?
If you have an epiphany every single time you study that means you're probably doin' something wrong--

But I like it when you're wrong

And underneath the pounds of makeup
And your baby blue eyes
Ohh oh

I know there's a lot of pain and hurt
For such a big brain to spend all night studying polisci

I pick up my phone and say

Ching chong, it means I love you
Ling long, I really want you
Ting tong, I really don't know what that means
Ching chong, it's never ending
Ling long, my head is spinning
Ting tong, I still don't know what that means

[Spoken, chorus continues in background]
It's alright, Bennett, I know you know nothin' bout tsunamis
I just wanna make sure you know it's not a type of sushi
And I came here to say that I'm actually Chinese, and that's a whole 'nother country
And it's bigger...yeah, way bigger.
But when it comes to love, Bennett, there are no boundaries

    General CommentThis song was written/posted as a rebuttal to the now famous rant against Asians in the library from student Alexandra Wallace. Jimmy took the high road and wrote this great song, instead of offering threats and other forms of retaliation. This is the highest road possible...watch the video here:
