from Pearl BUY

tommy drowned his sorrow nightly
tommy drowned his happiness too
tommy drowned and drowned till his drowning drowned
and now his drowning days are through
his drowning days are through

he says i'm going walking on the seashore barefoot
i'm gonna get my pearl
it's been waiting on the sea right there for me
a gift from the whole wide world
a gift from the whole wide world

mary left the hour of midnight
when she left her father's house
now she's holding on to moonlight
and she can turn the nightlight out
she can turn the nightlight out

she says i'm going walking on the seashore barefoot
i'm gonna get my pearl
it's been waiting on the sea right there for me
a gift from the whole wide world
a gift from the whole wide world

well i'll tell you a story someone told to me
we can only be as happy as we want to be
the road is open and the toll is free
and you're the only one who knows the way
so hey just say

i'm gonna go

mister mooney made a killing collecting
mountains of gold on the stock exchange
till he opened his eyes and he didn't see why
and he gave all the mountains away
he gave all the mountains away

he says i'm going walking on the seashore barefoot
i'm gonna get my pearl
it's been waiting on the sea right there for me
a gift from the whole wide world
a gift from the whole wide world
