Quite a few years ago,
We went to Rachael’s 30th Birthday,
It was held at a hotel in York,
All her friends there from far away,
It was a fancy dress do,
A Rachael dance you had to be,
We did not dress up that night,
Just wanted the others to see.
There was a young woman,
Didn’t actually know her name,
She was dressed in a lovely Chinese dress,
Couldn’t understand as what she came.
But everyone was laughing,
She was getting a lot of attention,
When the parade was over,
I thought I’d have to mention.
There had been so many good ones,
A lot of thought gone in,
That’s why it did surprise me,
When the Chinese dress did win.
I went to ask somebody,
They said just come and see,
She lifted up her dress,
To show a man’s blow up willyee.
I was just in stitches,
Could not believe my eyes,
I said what have you come as,
She said “Shanghai Surprise” !
