Pretty much related to Spilt Milk and if it´s from the late 90´s it can pretty well be its precursor as a prior version...

Basically it's a Spilt Milk version, with different lyrics and chorus...

Not to be confused with Ching Chang Chong by Cherona.  :P


I love this video -- whoever put it together did a magnificent job with the photos. The lyrics are a riot too. All-around winner, and better than the more sedate Spilt Milk, IMO.

It's a fun little song. :)

I STILL haven't ordered the B-sides yet  :oops:
I have to get my arse in gear & order it on Amazon even tho I'm trying to save desperately for my trip in June  :?.
