         My baby's the pearl of the Quarter

     |  C          G       |         F     Em7  |

         Day is done she's got a place to go


(Chords for vs. 3 & 4 same as for vs. 1 & 2)

Vs.III.  I walked alone down the miracle mile
         I met my baby by the shrine of the martyr
         She stole my heart with her cajun smile
         Singin' voulez voulez voulez vous

Vs. IV.  She loved the million-dollar words I say
         She loved the candy and the flowers that I bought her
         She said she loved me and was on her way
         Singin' voulez voulez voulez vous
