Lyrics of

Pearl of the quarter

View the transcriptions
On the water down in New Orleans
My baby's the pearl of the quarter
She's a charmer like you've never seen
Singing voulez voulez voulez vous

Where the sailor spends his hard earned pay
Red beans and rice for a quarter
You can see her almost anyday
singing voulez voulez voulez vous

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 shrine of the martyr
She stole my heart with her cajun smile
Singing voulez voulez 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 voulez voulez vous
