Mother Of Pearl
Wishbone Ash Lyrics


Underworld, the queen of pearls
Catches the light that's in your eyes.
She has desires, and has to get higher,
Trying to love the whole world.

Mother of pearl
She's a charity girl,
Giving herself away
To some body and soul.

Paradise if you pay the price
Inlaid with love she satisfies.
She has to pray alone everyday,
Lying in wait for the whole wide world.

Mother of pearl
She's a charity girl,
Giving herself away
To some body and soul.

Black see-through
Dressed to kill and cast her spell,
Sequins of fire for her love's desire,
She's drifting away from her open shell.

Mother of pearl
She's a charity girl,
Giving herself away
To some body and soul.

Saw these guys at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby PA, USA, back in '74. Loudest fucking concert I've ever been to. They had a backline of Orange amps. We had 8th row seats, so close we could smell them. I think I still have hearing damage. Great show!

This album was totally overlooked by the mainstream , excellent album , really grows on you.

Willard Melvin

all of their albums were overlooked by the mainstream

Steve Vowell

My first album of theirs, and I was hooked.

1990

@Steve Schellenberg I agree, Steve. My favourite Ash album. Have you ever listened to Be Bop Deluxe, another great English band from the 70s? If not, look up 'Futurama' on here.

I got this when it came out. One of the best records ever

1990

@Captain Sunday Yes, it does.

Now that is what you call a riff.

First heard this album in the mid 80s - an older friend said "You're gonna love this..." & dropped the needle on side 1, track 1. From the moment that opening riff played, then the drums kicked in, it's been in my top 10 of best rock albums...

Next to Argus, this is my favorite Wishbone Ash album
