Western male yearns for Eastern maid

They met by “a quaint old pagoda of pine” [in Asia Minor!], but it is The Orient.

Asia’s a wonderful land of love,
Bless’d by the Heavens so fair,
I met a wonderful girl I love,
That’s why I’m going there,
Picture a quaint old pagoda of pine,
That’s just the place where we met,
I’m going back again to make her mine,
Somehow I can’t forget:

CHORUS:
So I’m goin’ to take a liner,
To Asia Minor,
That’s where I’m sure I’ll find her,
She shows
By the way that she looks she knows
That she and I will be so content
In the Orient Where I met her,
Nona, Soon we will own a
Home that is built for two,
(And that is true),
Words express my feeling so mild,
Like a mother sighs for a child,
I sigh for Asia Minor and you.

Nona makes life like an old sweet song,
Tho’ I’ve met girls by the score,
I seem to hear her the whole night long,
Call from that foreign shore,
“Soon you said you’d be returning to me,
Do as you said, I implore!”
I’m goin’ to send a message from my heart,
Not only that but more:

Turkey
ASIA MINOR AND YOU
