This is arguably the weakest of Formby's Mr Wu songs, and is a fairly straightforward description of his marriage - to a Chinese girl, of course. The wedding was held in church, and instead of "Here Comes The Bride
" they walked down the aisle to the strains of the aforementioned "Chinese Laundry Blues". If a blues seems inappropriate for such a happy occasion this could be because no sooner had the happy couple departed than Mr Wu's new wife hit him over the head with a tea set.
Fortunately for his fans - if not for Mr Wu - Formby would go on to produce more and better songs in the same vein.
