China girl, I met you in the sea sand
You touched me with your cool hand
Your perfume´s in the wind

China girl, your daddy tells you white lies
To keep it from my blue eyes
To know me is no sin

[Chorus:]
And I won´t break you, China girl
If you take me into your world
It´s been my good fortune to find you
China girl

Stolen flowers, are the sweetest in the mornin´
The eastern sun is dawnin´
Your silk´s against my skin

China girl, take me to your jasmine place
Cool me with your subtle grace
To know me is no sin

[Chorus:]
