Pearl Necklace Lyrics

Artist: ZZ Top
Album: El Loco

She's really upset with me again,
I didn't give her what she likes.
I don't know what to tell her,
Don't know what to say.
Everything got funky last night.

She was really bombed,
And I was really blown away,
Until I asked her what she wanted,
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

She gets a charge out of bein' so weird,
Digs gettin' downright strange.
But I can keep a handle on anything,
Just this side of deranged.

She was gettin' bombed,
And I was gettin' blown away,
And she held it in her hand
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

She is so tough, as pure as the driven slush.
And that's not true what she's talkin' about, [see notes]
It really don't cost that much.

She was gettin' bombed,
And I was gettin' blown away,
And she took it in her hand,
And this is what she had to say:
A pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.
She wanna pearl necklace.

Sound to me like the lyric is:

"...that's not jewelry she's talkin' 'bout..."

which would make more sense in the context of the song.

I'm no lip reader, but when I saw ZZ Top perform this tune in concert, "jewelry" appeared to be the word what Rev. BFG was sangin'

IMO, in the 2nd and 3rd refrains the lyric changes from:

"she wanna pearl necklace"

to:

"she WORE a pearl necklace."
