__ The Weihsien Chorus
_____________ Tune Solomon Levi

Oh the joys of Weihsien! Oh the Weihsien day!
Good old Weihsien, tra-la-la-la-la-la-la!
We rise in the dark, and light the fires with coal that's really rocks,
We carry the water, collect the porridge, and empty the garbage box.
They cry 'puhsing' at everything, we smile and shout 'hooray'.
We'll live to see another year, and another Christmas Day.

And now we've come to the end of the song, and we hope it won't be long
Until we leave this Weihsien Camp - in that we can't be wrong.
So let's decide before we go that we will always strive
To whistle and sing a merry song in nineteen forty five.
