String Of Pearls - Jimmy Witherspoon

 

String Of Pearls by Jimmy Witherspoon


She want a string of pearls
All I got her was a necklace
Made of flowers from the trash can
She wanna make me pay for it
Yeah while I'm at I t guess I'll take another bath man
And the records out
Holding steady gaining on last place
And in a moment's notice
We'll be ready for the next new phase
Another stupid craze
She want a string of pearls
All I got her was a necklace
Made of flowers from the trash can
She's gonna make me pay for it
I start to sing and cry and then it makes me laugh man
Yeah we've all got doubts
Might not be winning but still in the race
And in a moment's notice
We'll be ready for her next new face
It might be hard to sell
Still never giving in
Have I given...so deep...oh..well
Will you give it all to me when you're dead
You can keep the scent on my pillow
To settle your broken heart in head
Will you think of me when you die
Holding steady
Moment's notice
Again she left with my heart in hand
She says she hates me
Yeah she's lied before
Again it's time to play me
Yeah it just adds up
That same sad melodic score
I wrote another one
Does this one count
And did it cost as much as all the other ones
So much more...
She want a string of pearls
All I got her was a necklace
Made of flowers from the trash can
She wanna make me pay for it
Yeah while I'm at it guess I'll take another bath man
Yeah the record's out
Holding steady gaining on last place
And in a moments notice
We'll be ready for her next new face
So I state my case
Would you want a string of pearls
'Cause all I got you was a necklace
Made of flowers from a trash can
And she want a string of pearls
Ain't that enough, ma'am?
I think it's worth so much more
