Tour Bus (376)

Egg Shen’s (Victor Wong) tour bus spiel:

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.

I am Mr Egg Shen, with this wonderful tour.

Sit back and enjoy yourselves, see?

Long time ago, Chinese men with

gold-rush fever flooded into California.

We call Gam Saan – Mountain of Gold, see?

Leaving behind their wives and children.

Working for years to complete

the transcontinental railroad,

saving all their pennies.

And then they sent for their families

to help build this beautiful Chinatown

you see outside your window

this fine warm day.
