[D] Have you ever heard a love song, that you didn't under-[G] stand
Where you met her in a [D] teahouse, on the Island of [A7] Japan
And [D] have you ever travelled over many thousand [G] miles
To see a pretty [D] Gesiha Girl, dressed in [A7] Oriental [D] style.
They [G] read it in the [D] tealeaves and it's [A7] written in the [D] sand
I [G] found love by the [D] heart full, in a foreign distant [A7] land
Tell the [D] home folks that I'm happy, with someone that's true, I [G]
I love a pretty [D] Geisha Girl, where the [A7] ocean breezes [D] blow.
I have stood and watched the sun rise, from the waters of the sea
And wondered how much beauty, in this whole world can there be
My dreams are all worth dreamin' and it makes my life worthwhile
To see my pretty Geisha Girl, dressed in Oriental style.
