The pearl of my eye was once a grain of sand
Whose beauty and luster was lost on every man
But the oyster that is life, steeped in mystery
Transformed her into a jewel, perfect just for me

Every grain of sand, amongst the multitudes
Can become a pearl – there is one out there for you
So don’t underestimate each grain upon the beach
She might be your pearl who the oyster has not yet reached

And women out there who think that they’ve been overlooked
A lifetime of sand my not be the ending of your book
The pearl that takes longest to finally mineralize
Is the pearl that shines brightest in many a man’s eyes
