"All the Crown Jewels"

Nina Ricci

 

Chorus

All the crown jewels All the crown jewels

Margaret said she’d show me all the crown jewels

An eyeglass loupe will magnify the light

And I can’t wait till I get the glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

 

Verse 1

Margaret’s got a leather-covered snake skin trunk

She told me to appraise and throw away the junk

It’s hard to see the diamonds, they’re all mixed in

With the custom costume brooches and the riff-raff shims

 

Chorus 

 

Verse 2

I saw a gin and a genie in the facets of a gem

And I fall under their enchantment

I don’t need to steal ‘cuz I eat with my eyes

They’re filled to the brim with little flicker lights

 

Chorus

 

Verse 3

A Polish ring, a Polish ring

It’s porcelain white, just a little cracked thing

It don’t have a glitter, no it don’t have a sparkle

But I’ve got a fancy for it and I dream it in the dark, Oh

Got a fancy for it and I wear it in my dreams

Got a fancy for it and I dream it in the dark

 

Chorus

All the crown jewels All the crown jewels

Margaret said she’d show me all the crown jewels

An eyeglass loupe will magnify the light

And I can’t wait till I get the glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes
