Steve Winwood Pearly Queen Lyrics

I bought a sequined suit from a pearly queen

And she could drink more wine than I’d ever seen

She had some gypsies’ blood flowing through her feet

And when the time was right she said that I would meet

My destiny

I traveled round the world to find the sun

I couldn’t stop myself from having fun

And then one day I met an Indian girl

And she made me forget this troubled world

We’re living in

I had a strange dream. In my hair

I saw a pearly queen lying there

And all around her feet flowers bloomed

But they were made of silk and sequins two by two
