Strange, old song, 'Chinatown, My Chinatown'

You might have heard this odd little song on the video game 'Mafia'. It actually dates from 1910 and is a jazz interpretation of the 'exotic Orient' done by the popular songwriters of the day William Jerome and Jean Schwartz. It ends with the immortal lyrics.. "wing, wong". Erm, yes, classic.
