Circle left
*Have you ever heard a love song - that you didn't understand?
You met her in a teahouse - on the island of Japan

Men star by the right hand, go once around the ring
Find the corner, allemande left and weave the ring
They read it in the tea leaves, it's written in the sand
**Swing and promenade to a foreign, distant land
Tell the home folks I'm happy with someone true I know
I love a pretty geisha girl where the ocean breezes blow


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I've stood and watched the sun rise - from the waters of the sea
And wondered how much beauty - in this world can there be


*My dreams are all worth dreaming - and it makes my life worthwhile
To see my pretty geisha girl - dressed in oriental style


**I found love by the heartful in a foreign distant land


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru
Step to a wave and then you all swing thru
Spin the top
Boys move up and a right & left thru and then turn the girl and then
Two ladies chain, send her back, dixie style
Keep that girl and you promenade
Tell the home folks I'm happy with someone true I know
I love a pretty geisha girl where the ocean breezes blow
