These pearls from my mother, passed down from her mother
Of everything they gave me, I treasure them most
Can't wear them, can't hold them, don't come from the ocean
Oh, they're way more precious than anything I own

They're written in my soul

Remember who you are and don't forget to pray
Make sure he's your best friend when you give your heart away
Be kind, be strong, be someone everyone can count on
Yeah, someday I'm gonna give my little girl these pearls, oh yeah, yeah

I'll teach her about make-up, boyfriends and break-ups
I'll share all the wisdom I've ever learned
Like beauty's on the inside and give it your best try
I'll pass down the same words, I've always heard

And she'll carry them with her

Remember who you are and don't forget to pray
Make sure he's your best friend when you give your heart away
Be kind, be strong, be someone everyone can count on
Yeah, someday I'm gonna give my little girl these pearls

She'll tell her daughter and she'll tell hers too
I've saved these pearls just for you, just for you

Remember who you are and don't forget to pray
Make sure he's your best friend when you give your heart away
Yeah, be kind, be strong, be someone everyone can count on
Yeah, someday I'm gonna give my little girl, oh
Someday I'm gonna give my little girl these pearls

These precious pearls
