John Mellencamp – China Girl lyrics

Written by: Joe New and Jeff Silbar

China girl, I met you on 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 you from by 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 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
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.
