"Pearly Dewdrops' Drops" as written by Simon Philip Raymonde, Elizabeth Fraser and Robin A. Guthrie....
We'll be sold
When Roddy comes

We'll be sold when Roddy
Comes for pearly dewdrop's drops
Weeks in our company
Cups of pearly dewdrops' drops

We'll be sold when Roddy comes
Comes for pearly dewdrop's drops
Tis the lucky lucky penny penny penny
Buys the pearly to their souls

And as he jump the puddle
To try to turn to loving this.
Where still I am on my stuff
So when he turned around he saw

We'll be sold when Roddy comes
Comes for pearly dewdrop's drops
Tis the lucky lucky penny penny penny
Buys the pearly to their souls

(We'll be sold to Roddy, sold to Roddy)
Comes for pearly dewdrop's drops
(We'll be sold to Roddy, sold to Roddy)
Tis the lucky lucky penny penny penny
Buys the pearly to their souls

    General CommentSometimes I think it sounds like "ruby sucks, and roddy comes"

    fits with the name "pearly dewdrops' drops"...

    General CommentI've always had the feeling that the song is about hooking up with some serious opiate type drug, most likely china white H, hence the "pearly dewdrops drops" that are injected. First off, the feeling of the melody is so trance-like, like you're floating down a rabbit hole, but with this deep, distorted, heavy bass and guitar line using minors and inverted 4ths to reflect a shadow side - like that tunnel scene in Willy Wonka, punctuated by high trills (during "lucky..."). I think the lyrics suggest a drug theme too. "Roddy" may be a friend that stayed for a few weeks and has "the lucky lucky penny penny penny (that) Buys the pearly dew drips soaks" that get them all "soaked and ruddy"

    I don't know, what do others think?

    General CommentI'm gonna have to agree with you Nic, part of me hates going on these websites because i love making my own lyrics to the songs. This is especially good with the Cocteau Twins dont you think?:)
