Suzanne And The Jewels Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Suzanne was a jewel keeper
In a word she stole all the jewels
And she took them to a foreign land
Which was strictly against all the rules

And she wore them all proudly
Like a tiara crown on her head
And she slept with them at night
Suzanne and the jewels in a bed

Suzanne and her jewels
Livin' on the edge of a friend
Suzanne, how will you sleep at night
When they take that crown from your head?

Suzanne lived down by the river
The fountain of youth did flow
And she played on a steel guitar
And the drifters, they'd come and they'd go

And she'd put on her crown
And she'd sing them a song
And some drifters would stay here the night
But they never did stay long

Suzanne and her jewels
Livin' on the edge of a friend
Suzanne, how will you sleep at night
When they take that crown from your head?

This girl flew on the wind
She wrote her own name in the stars
Just goes to show sometimes you win
No matter how crazy you are

But a thief can come knocking
Even with blood on the door
And drink up your fountain of youth
And throw your jewels and your crown on the floor

Suzanne and her jewels
Livin' on the edge of a friend
Suzanne, how will you sleep at night
When they take that crown from your head?

Suzanne and her jewels
Livin' on the edge of a friend
Suzanne, how will you sleep at night
When they take that crown off your head?
