PEARL OF THE QUARTER Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Countdown To Ecstacy

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

I believe it's "voulez voulez voulez vous"

It's definitely "shrine of the martyr," but that's probably just a typo.

I can sing this song perfectly. I think this is my favorite one, besides King of the World.

like razor boy, boston rag, your gold teeth and king of the world.

Won't you tell her I love her so

should be

Won't you tell her I say hello

I met my baby by the shrine of the matyr, not shine.

It's "I say hello" on the first chorus and "I lover her so" on the second and third.
