Searching for that OTHER Racist Song About Chinese Food

So Alison Gold's "Chinese Food"
is a thing, and it made me remember an internet song from ~2002 or so. It was called "Ching Chong Wong" and was to the tune of "Long Train Runnin'". Anybody know where it came from?

Apologies for the racial slur and general racism, but "Chinese Food" made me remember it, and it seems to have DISAPPEARED from the internet. I didn't know that was possible, so I'm hunting it down.
Lyrics, as far as I can remember were something like:
Ching Chong Wong, give me more fried chicken
Ching Chong Wong, Mexicans in the kitchen
Ching Chong Wong, give me pu pu platter
Ching Chong Wong, MSG DON'T MATTER!
"MSG DON'T MATTER" was kind of yelled, and I actually yell it in my head whenever MSG comes up in conversations.
I'm also relatively sure the guy who made it had other songs, and seem to it remember being hosted on some sort of Geocities-esque site... It was definitely that era.
Again, sorry for this whole question, but it's really bothering me.
