Come with us, come with us To a place you've never seen That is far, far away It's the land of your dreams You will see, you will see Where the dragons fly And the beautiful geisha sings so high La la la it's a fairytale She will swing her fan and dance the night away She will climb so high to the Mt. Fuji sky And will sing her heart out "Where's my samurai?" Somewhere deep inside there's a place For you and me, where we can find our dream Somewhere deep inside you and me A geisha sings and plays her melody Follow us, follow us In this geisha's dream we must Sing along with her dance And her melody and song Hear her sing and dance In her kimono When her fingers are playing the harp and koto La la la it's a fairytale She will swing her fan and dance the night away She will climb so high to the Mt. Fuji sky And will sing her heart out "Where's my samurai?"
