Album Green Tambourine. Green Tambourine Lyrics. Drop your silver in my tambourine Help a poor man fill a 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. A chart-topper in 1967 for the Lemon Pipers. Noted for its use of East Indian instrumentation and a tape echo making the dreamy line play-play-play-play, allowing the song to greatly appeal to the youth of the day.

Alan from Toronto, OnI just purchased The Lemon Pipers - Green Tambourine album while I was in Buffalo, it was used but in mint condition and I thought to pick it up to replace my old copy, however when I got home I discovered that the serial numbers and label were different. It is on the Kama Sutra label (SBDL 55-004), It also has Buddah Records Original Recording logo in the top right corner and Kama Sutra Distribuzione Dischi Ricordi . in the center top which means it's a Italian pressing, I haven't been able to find any trace of this pressing on the internet, what a rare. Thank goodness for the Lemon Pipers! Too bad not many radio stations in Alabama play "Green Tambourine" anymore. If I could get hold of a CD with "Green Tambourine" on it, that would be some satisfaction.
