CHINA LIGHT (words: Robert J. Purvis and William Elliott; music: Robert J. Purvis)

China Light, come shine your light on me

Make this night the night for you and me

Like the East wind you came softly, touched my heart I knew

We were meant to be together, sharing as we do

Here in China Light

Here in China Light


As the midnight moon departs the sky

Geisha lady, please don't pass me by

Never tell me sayonara, never say farewell

Do our birth signs go together, only time will tell

Here in China Light

Here in China Light, ahhhh


Dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai da

Dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai da

[organ solo]

***Here in China Light

Here in China Light


Oriental picture postcard scene

Something nice to show you where I've been

How do I know I've been dreaming, it could well be true

I can see you Chinese lady, can you see me too?***


Here in China Light

Here in China Light

Here in China Light

Here in China Light, ahhhh


Dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai da

Dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai da


Here in China Light

Here in China Light

Here in China Light

Here in China Light

Here in China Light, ahhhh.

CHINA LIGHT (words: Robert J. Purvis and William Elliott; music: Robert J. Purvis)
[Live on WCMF version]

China Light, come shine your light on me

Make this night the night for you and me

Like the East wind you came softly, touched my heart I knew

We were meant to be together, sharing as we do

Here in China Light


As the midnight moon departs the sky

Geisha lady, please don't pass me by

Never tell me sayonara, never say farewell

Do our birth signs go together, only time will tell

Here in China Light

Here in China Light, ahhhh


Dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai dum

Dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai dum

Dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai dum

Dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai, dai dai dai dai dum

Here in China Light

Something nice to show you where I've been

How do I know I've been dreaming, it could well be true

I can see you Chinese lady, can you see me too?


Here in China Light

Here in China Light

Here in China Light

Here in China Light, ahhhh.
