Brown Skin Gal - Duke Ellington (艾靈頓公爵)

Written by:Duke Ellington

A penny for the moon a nickel for a dream

A quarter for a tune like the Old Mill Stream

But I'd give a dollar and my heart to foller to

The Brown-Skin Gal in The Calico Gown

 

A puzzler for a pal

 

A jack-knife for a song a garter for a gal

In a blue sarong

But I'd give a necklace because I'm reckless

For a kiss from the miss in the Calico Gown

 

Haven't much use for worldly goods

 

Robin Hood's for me if my love's worth a nickel

It's worth a peso mine for the giving

Hers for the say so

A penny for a cart to take her out to dine

A scissor cuts a heart on a Valentine

Then a sky-blue bonnet with pink ribbons on it

For The Brown-Skin Gal in The Calico Gown

 

For The Brown-Skin Gal in The Calico Gown
