"Green Tambourine"

Green TambourineALAN PETITTI
00:00 / 01:04

Alan Petitti and Dave Herlihy are no strangers to psychedelia. Both heavily influenced by the sights and sounds of the 60s, Alan and Dave have displayed their admiration for the genre before with O Positive recording remakes of "Walk Away Renée", "I Call Your Name", and "Ruby Tuesday". For his debut album, Alan thought it would be far out to tune up and drop in with Dave for this unique spin on The Lemon Piper's "Green Tambourine".

Green Tambourine Alan Petitti
Oh Hello Boston

Green Tambourine (Leka, Pinz)

Drop your silver in my tambourine

Help a poor man build his pretty dream

Give me pennies, I'll take anything

Now listen while I play

My green tambourine

Watch the jingle jangle start to shine

Reflections of the music that is mine

When you toss a coin, you'll hear it sing

Now listen while I play

My green tambourine

Drop a dime before I walk away

Any song you want, I'll gladly play

Money feeds my music machine

Now listen while I play

My green tambourine

Listen and I'll play
