A
but just when you're strollin' in the rain through Tiananmen square
E
you turn around and look for China and she ain't nowhere
          C                      G
she's a dangerous habit she's a red hot hit
          D                           A
you could get a better rabbit but you just can't quit
B
she's a pretty little little lady
B
she's a pretty little little lady
B                                                    \\
