pearl lyrics – mamas & the papas

first star i see tonight,
i wish i may, i wish i might
have the wish i wish tonight.

a banker抯 daughter or a runaway girl,
a little lady or a honky-tonk pearl
has to find someplace in this world
where she feels at home.
a banker抯 daughter is so hard to deceive;
a little lady is so hard to please.
honky-tonk pearl wears her heart on her sleeve,
and her heart will not grow cold.

first star i see tonight,
i wish i may, i wish i might
have the wish i wish tonight.

here抯 a wish for a runaway girl;
here抯 a prayer for honky-tonk pearl—
hope she finds someplace outta this world
where she feels at home.

first star i see tonight,
i wish i may, i wish i might…
first star (first star)
i see tonight (i see tonight)
i wish i may, i wish i might…
i wish i may, i wish i might
have the wish i wish tonight.
