[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 traveled over many thousand [G] miles
To see a pretty [D] Geisha 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] know
I love a pretty [D] Geisha Girl, where the [A7] ocean breezes [D] blow.
I have [D] stood and watched the sun rise, from the waters of the [G] sea
And wondered how much [D] beauty, in this whole world can there [A7] be
My [D] dreams are all worth dreamin' and it makes my life worth [G] while
To see my pretty [D] Geisha Girl, dressed in [A7] Oriental [D] style.
