"Lawng, lawng ago...."
L[A]ong, long a[E]go, in C[A]hina I'm t[E]old

All [A]England, and [E]all of the w[B]orld

When s[A]oon his majes[E]ty sent s[A]oldiers and t[E]hieves
To [A]India se[E]arching for g[B]old
Inst[A]ead, from the gr[E]ound some m[A]agic they f[E]ound
Aww, s[A]omething far b[E]etter I'm t[B]old

So ev[A]eryb[E]ody could sm[B]ile
