I write you from a far country, north of Africa
B      E B    E       B       E  B    
 It is Algeria and my city is Oran


[Chorus 1]
A  B    E           D         A      B
      I know you'll find this letter strange
A  B  E       D       A    B       A  B
      That is because I am strange
   Em            F#             B           D
My first name is Amal and I'm a girl, I'm a girl, la la la
   Em            F#             B           D
My first name is Amal and I'm a girl, I'm a girl, la la la

My first name is Amal, and I'm a girl

I am a Norwegian boy, which have some question
B        E   B            E    B       E  B      
I have only thirteen years and I am crazy of you


[Chorus 2]
A  B  E     D      A    B  
      Can I have a souvenir?
A  B      E      D      A       B     A  B
      And if you can, a wick of hair?
G       G/F# D    E                          
Send me docu-ments and a photo of you alone


[Bridge]
N.C.
Here's my photo dédicace, one of you would be canon
N.C.                               B              B     D
I worship all your handsome words, to me you seem giant


[Chorus 3]
A  B  E         D        A        B
      You're so cool but you know that
A  B    E         D       A     B    A  B
      I hope your letters never stop
Em             F#              B           D
You are surely special, I like you, I like you, la la la
Em             F#              B           D
You are surely special, I like you, I like you, la la la
Em             F#              B           D
You are surely special, I like you, I like you, I like you
Em             F#              B           
You are surely special, I like you
