“Fan Tan Fannie” LYRICS

Ta: [spoken]
Honorable Ladies and Gentlemen: Welcome to the Grand Opening
of the jewel of New Chinatown – Club Chop Suey!

Linda:
Fan Tan Fannie
Was leaving her man,
Fan Tan Fannie
Kept waving her fan,
Said, “Goodbye, Danny,
You two-timing Dan,
Some other man
Loves your little Fannie!
Bye, bye!

In the icebox
You’ll find in a can,
Some leftovers
Of moo goo gai pan.
Fan Tan Fannie
Has found a new guy,
His name is Manny,
He’s good for Fannie,
So goodbye, Danny,
Goodbye.”

All:
“Fan Tan Fannie!
Fan Tan Fannie!”

“Bye bye!”

“Fan Tan Fannie
Has found a new guy,
His name is Manny,
He’s good for Fannie,
So goodbye, Danny,
Goodbye!
Bye bye!
Bye bye!
Hope you like moo goo gai pan!”
