Steely DanPearl Of The Quarter

On the water down in New Orleans My baby's the pearl of the quarter She's a charmer like you never seen Singing voulez vous Where the sailor spend his hard-earned pay Red beans and rice for a quarter You can see her almost any day singing voulez vous [Chorus] And if you hear from my Louise Won't you tell her I love her so Please make it clear When her day is done She got a place to go I walked alone down the miracle mile I met my baby by the shine of the martyr She stole my heart with her Cajun smile Singing voulez vous She loved the million dollar words I say She loved the candy and the flowers that I bought her She said she loved me and was on her way Singing voulez vous [Chorus] © 2017
