Running trotting in the shafts,
Ricksha boy, he runs and laughs,
Laughs at trouble, laughs at joy.
Wanchee one good ricksha boy?

Ricksha boy, he laugh and run
From the time he see the sun.
Ricksha boy he velly strong,
Trot like horse a whole day long.

Maybe he no fast as horse,
But he savee more, of course.
Plentee pletty shop he know,
He tell missee which way go.

Running, trotting in the shafts,
Ricksha boy he runs and laughs,
Laughs at trouble, laughs at joy.
Wanchee one good ricksha boy?

No man ride ricksha all day,
Ricksha boy no have got pay.
No catch one piece man just now,
Ricksha boy no catch em chow.

Foreign rich man walk down street,
Have got money, no use feet!
Number One man no b'long walk.
Ricksha boy make plentee talk.

"Ricksha, ricksha, missee say?
Wanchee ricksha? No big pay!
Twenty cents velly long way.
Wanchee ricksha boy today?

"Ricksha have got nice soft seat!
Looksee, Missee, no can beat!
Missee, wheree wanchee go?
Sh-sh! Ricksha boy, he know!"

Running, trotting in the shafts,
Ricksha boy he runs and laughs,
Laughs at trouble, laughs at joy.
Wanchee one good ricksha boy?

Sun go down, come velly cold.
Maybe ricksha boy be old.
Ricksha heavy, now get late.
Kwy-da! Watchman close a gate!

No use kwy-da. Now must wait.
Ricksha boy, he laugh at fate.
Running, trotting in the shafts,
Ricksha boy he runs and laughs.

Laughs at trouble . . . laughs at joy . . .
Wanchee one good ricksha boy?
