The 'Description Box' will explain everything etc...
Look mum, I want that pearl!
"But that'll mean I'll have to work."
We'll both feel suicidal, suicidal.
Stupid to worry over
Then there's that other pearl...
It's too cheap for you to work
"I'll still feel suicidal, suicidal."
Besides, I need to feed Rover!
I was walking in the park
Trying to sing like a lark
Lookin' at some art
Tryin' to play the part
Coz I really thought
that jewels last forever (last forever)
You say I'm too young
To around my neck have precious jewels strung
But with a proud air
I said I didn't care
Oh, but the feeling won't last any longer. (any longer)
See they're very fine, nice pearls
Some of a kind
They're all on my mind
But my mummy declined
I think she's going crazy!
Chorus! (see above)
It was only dollars ninety-nine
With a lov-er-ly shine (yeah)
When I look away
In me head it goes astray
And all that I thought
That pearls drove a girl crazy (crazy)
And so I came about
Thinking North and South
My life with these pearls
The best in the world
Fake they turned out to be
No, they weren't the pearls for me (for me)
Refrain and Chorus! (see above)
See I'm sad and fussin'
Fake pearls not worth fightin'
Can someone tell me why
I took those pearls a liking
Can't believe those pearls are ones I know
They could look better (better)
Now I look 'em with me eyes
I see terrible lies
Oh I'll never believe
What I saw first without real eyes
Mother saw 'em too
But wait, she's too clever (too clever).
Those pearls weren't beautiful
Although my mummy never worked
We both feel suicidal, suicidal, suicidal...
