Hank Snow — Geisha Girl lyrics

Have you ever heard a love song that you didn't understand
Were you ever in a teahouse on the Island of Japan
And have you ever traveled over many thousand miles
To see a pretty Geisha girl dressed in Oriental style.

They've read it in the tea leaves and it's written in the sand
I found love by the heartful in the foreign distant land
Tell the homefolks that I'm happy with someone who's true I know
I love a pretty Geisha girl where the ocean breezes blow.

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/hank-snow-geisha-girl-lyrics.html ]
I have stood and watched the sunrise by the waters of the sea
And wondered how much beauty in this whole world can that be
My dreams are all worth dreaming and it makes my life worth while
To see a pretty Geisha girl dressed in Oriental style.

(They've read it in the tea leaves and it's written in the sand
I found love by the heartful in the foreign distant land)
Tell the homefolks that I'm happy with someone who's true I know
I love a pretty Geisha girl where the ocean breezes blow...
