"Geisha Girl" lyrics - HANK LOCKLIN

"Geisha Girl"
(Lawton Williams)

Have you ever heard a love song that you didn't understand
Well you've met her in a teahouse on the island of Japan
And have you ever traveled over a many thousand miles
To see a pretty geisha girl dressed in oriental style

They read it in the tea leaves and it's written in the sand
I found love by the heart-full in the foreign distant land
Tell the home folks that I'm happy with someone that's true I know
I love a pretty geisha girl where the ocean breezes blow

I have stood and watched the sunrise from the waters of the sea
And wondered how much beauty in this whole world can there be
My dreams are all worth dreaming and it makes my life worth while
To see my pretty geisha girl dressed in oriental style
