Pearly Queen - Steve Winwood

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
