She want a string of pearls
All I got her was a necklace
Made of flowers from a trash can
She wanna amke me pay for it
Yeah while I'm at it I'll take
Another bath man
And the record's out
Holding steady gaining on last place
And in a moment's notice
We'll be ready for the next new phase
Another stupid craze
She want a string of pearls
All I got her was a necklace
Made of flowers from the trash can
She's gonna make me pay for it
I start to sing and cry and then
It makes me laugh man
Yeah we've all got doubts
Might not be winning but still in the race
And in a moment's notice
We'll be ready for her next new face
It might be hard to sell
Still never giving in
Have I given....So deep....oh....Well
Will you give it all to me when you're dead
You can kelly the scent on my pillow
To settle your broken heart in hand
She says she hates me
Yeah she's lied before
Again it's time to play me
That same saf melodic score
I wrote another one
Does this one count
And did it cost as much as all the other ones
So much more......
She want a string of pearls
All i got her was a necklace
Made of flowers from the trash can
She wanna make me pay for it
And while I'm at it guess I'll take
Another bath man
Yeah the record's out
Holding steady gaining on last place
And in a moment's notice
We'll be ready for the next new face
So i state my case
Would you want a string of pearls
'Cause all I got you was a necklace
Made of flowers from a trash can
And she want a string of pearls
Ain't that enough, ma'am?
I think it's worth so much more

    General CommentI believe this song is about a girl that just doesn't appreciate any gift that has no monetary value and is thinking about the money and material things all the time.

    I read somewhere that Jimmi wrote all this record (Bring your own stereo) about his ex girlfriend, so I guess this song must be about her...

    Great song by the way!

    General Commentthis song is about a girl that doesn't appreciate the simple things in life. as men, we will do anything for the woman we love, but sometimes it isn't enough for her money issues. i could be wrong... but i feel close to this song right now.. i miss you A.S.H.... i love you, even though i only have a "necklace made of flowers from the trashcan".. it's for you my love..
