Lyrics

Pearl, oh, Pearl
Don't cloister yourself away
Everybody loves a pretty girl
The world's your oyster, come out to play

And you know that you shouldn't wear
Dark clothes anymore
Your heart should be an open book
And not a locked and shuttered store

Pearl, oh Pearl
Don't cloister yourself away
Everybody loves a pretty girl
The world's your oyster come out to play

And you know that shouldn't cry
Those tears anymore
You could wash your love away
And send it sailing out the door

Pearl, oh Pearl
Don't cloister yourself away
Everybody loves a pretty girl
The world's your oyster come out to play

Oh Pearl...
(There's a nice middle bit here...)
(Repeat first verse/chorus)
["whatever the chord is"]
