B                              F#
When I got back home I found a message on the door
B                            F#
Sweet Regina's gone to China cross-legged on the floor
C#           B                   F#
Of a burning jet that's smoothly flying:
C#               B                F#
Burning airlines give you so much more.


B                                F#
How does she intend to live when she's in far Cathay?
B                                F#
I somehow can't imagine her just planting rice all day.
C#             B           F#
Maybe she will do a bit of spying
C#                 B             F#
With micro-cameras hidden in her hair.

Riff x4

B                                F#
I guess Regina's on the plane, a Newsweek on her knees
B                                           F#
While miles below her the curlews call from strangely stunted trees.
C#                    B                   F#
The painted sage sits just as though he's flying;
C#           B                  F#
Regina's jet disturbs his wispy beard.


B                           F#
When you reach Kyoto send a postcard if you can,
B                                    F#
And please convey my fond regards to Chih-Hao's girl Yu-Lan.
C#              B                 F#
I heard a rumor they were getting married
C#               B             F#
But someone left the papers in Japan.


Riff 2x (and over the ending)
F#   C#   B  F#     F#   C#   B  F#     fade out
Left them in Japan, left them in Japan...
