China Girl

This song is by Roy Harper and appears on the album Sophisticated Beggar (1966).

Pretty little China girl
Tiny oriental pearl
Hold me in your dragon magic
Willow pattern smile
How does it feel? Is it unreal?
Around the other side of the plate?

The pieces of my heart somewhere
Are locked inside your raven hair
Won't you love me? - don't you care?
I need that love girl
But you're just walking away
I'll see you some other day
On some other planet

Pretty China girl - Pretty China girl
I'm diggin' you
Pretty China girl
I'm diggin' you

Poppy diamond dripping eyes
Sitting in your sunflower skies
Fly me just one sunrise
Of your China painted land
Paradise bird - Delicate word
Like snow shelters in its own mask

The burning leaves the trees unfurled
Of empty love - some naked word
That falls around our never heard
Like you - disappearing
Fading into your sun
I don't know what you've not won
Or how much I'm bleeding

Pretty China girl - Pretty China girl
I'm diggin' you
Pretty China girl
I'm diggin' you

China girl, China girl
China girl, China girl
China girl, China girl
China girl
