Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,

He took a trip to see his mother,
And she was sick, how he got over, he took pride in everything he did,
Never had a harsh word?

Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,

Works on the snow, works in the wind,
How does he travel? Who's with him?
Didn't think Chan had a family,
Grew accustomed to a symphony, Chan held on to his mystery,

Chan, what'why doin man?
Say Chan, I wrote this song about you man,

It goes, Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,

Miss his cooking, sense of humour,
Miss his timing, his discipline, wee all miss Chan but we can't advoid,
Now there's an empty space (?),
Goin to give to leave his job,
He's the only man, I wrote this song,

Hey, Chan, what'why doin man?
Say Chan, I wrote this song about you man,

It goes, Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Hitchhikes, Hitchhikes,
To Shanghai, Hitchhikes, to Shanghai,
Chan,

Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan goes to Shanghai,
Chan hitchhikes to Shanghai,
Chan, hitchhikes, Oh Chan, anyway you can

Ha, Come back Chan, come back Chan,
Shanghai Chan,
Shanghai Chan,
Shanghai
