The Chinese Czerny Scam

OK, so, does anyone know what this means? I'm terrible at Chinese, but I know that those Chinese words are NOT Romanized in the Wade-Giles OR Pinyin system. And, I think that most of the tunes in the Fantasia are FAKES. However, one seems pretty authentic. It is labeled "Toung Men Tchi Tchi Kho I Cou Mo". Any people know where Czerny got this? Anyone know of this folksong? Any other info?

Thanks,
Ky

BTW the names of the other tunes in the Fantasia are:

Lon Li Hoang Y Te Ku Shi

Yn Khi Loui Tsai Nan Chan Tchi Yang

Toung Men Tchi Tchi Kho I Cou Mo


(1) I believe "Ku Shi" Might mean "Gu Shi", which means "story" in Mandarin Chinese.
(2) I believe "Nan Chan" might refer to the Nan Chan Temple (南禅).
(3) I don't know what "Toung" refers to, but I believe the rest might be "们 吃 吃 可 依 Cou? Ma?"
