I want to live with a cinnamon girl
I could be happy the rest of my life
With a cinnamon girl

A dreamer of pictures, I run in the night
You see us together, chasing the moonlight
My cinnamon girl

Ten silver saxes, a bass with a bow
The drummer relaxes and waits between shows
For his cinnamon girl

A dreamer of pictures, I run in the night
You see us together, chasing the moonlight
My cinnamon girl

Pa send me money now
I'm gonna make it somehow
I need another chance
You see, your baby loves to dance
Yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentWell,I like cinnamon and girls so I really can't help but like this song. Now if is was called chamomile or coriandor girl, I think I and many others may have had some serious issues with this song. So he definitely got his herb right (btw as a side note Simon and Garfunkle made good choices as well with Sage, Rosemary and Thyme in Scarborough Fair- those 60's groups really knew their herbs!) Oh, and this song has a killer riff too.

    General CommentWhy do I have this idea that this song is related to the one the Rolling Stones sing? That one about brown sugar.

    General CommentCinnamon Girl" is about a hippie girl he encountered on a street while walking home... it is not about a drug dealer
