Diamonds From Sierra Leone

Diamonds From Sierra Leone

Diamonds are forever

They won’t leave in the night

I’ve no fear that they might

Desert me

 

[Chorus]

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever)

Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever, forever)

The Roc is still alive every time I rhyme.

Forever ever? Forever ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever?……

 

Close your eyes and imagine, feel the magic

Vegas on acid,

Seen through Yves St. Laurent glasses

And I’ve realized that I’ve arrived, cuz

It take more than a magazine to kill my Vibe does

he write his own rhymes, so sort of

I think ’em

That mean I forgot better shit than u ever thought up

Damn, is he really that caught up?

I ask if you talkin’ bout classics, do my name get brought up?

I remember I couldn’t afford a Ford Escort or even a four-track recorder

so its only right that I let the top drop on a drop-top Porsche

– its for yourself that’s important

If a stripper named Porscha and u get tips from many men

Then your fat friend her nickname is Minivan

Excuse me,

That’s just the Henny, man, I smoke, I drink, I’m supposed to stop I can’t because

 

[Chorus]

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever)

Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever, forever)

The Roc is still alive every time I rhyme.

Forever ever? Forever ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever?……

 

I was sick about awards

Couldn’t nobody cure me

Only playa that got robbed but kept all his jewelry

Alicia Keys tried to talk some sense to them

30 minutes later seems there’s no convincing them

What more can you ask for?

The international assholes nah

Who complains about what he is owed?

And throw a tantrum like he is 3 years old

You gotta love it though somebody still speaks from his soul

And wouldn’t change by the change, or the game, or the fame,

When he came, in the game, he made his own lane

Now all I need is y’all to pronounce my name

Its Kanye – But some of my plastic – they still say Kane

Got family in the D, Kin-folk from Motown

Back in the Chi – them folks ain’t from Motown

Life movin’ too fast I need to slow down

Girl ain’t give me no ass, ya need to go down

 

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever)

My father Ben said I need Jesus

So he took me to church and let the water wash over my ceaser

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever)

The preacher said we need leaders

Right then my body got still like a paraplegic

 

You know who you can call you gotta best believe it

The Roc stand tall and you would never believe it

Take your diamonds and throw ’em up like you bulimic

Yea the beat cold but the flow is anemic

After debris settles and the dust get swept off

Big K pick up where young Hov left off

Right when magazines wrote Kanye West off

I dropped my new shit sound like the best of

A&R’s lookin’ like “pssh we messed up”

Grammy night, damn right, we got dressed up

Bottle after bottle till we got messed up

In the studio, where really though, yea he next up

People askin’ me if I’m gon’ give my chain back

That’ll be the same day I give the game back

You know the next question dog “Yo, where Dame at?”

This track the Indian dance to bring our reign back

“What’s up with you and Jay, man, are y’all ok man?”

They pray for the death of our dynasty like Amen

R-r-r-right here stands a-man

With the power to make a diamond with his bare hands…

 

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever)

Throw your diamonds in the sky if you feel the vibe

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever, forever)

The Roc is still alive every time I rhyme.

Forever ever? Forever ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever? Ever, ever?……

 

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever)

Diamonds are forever (forever, forever, forever)

Written by Kanye West, Devon Harris, John Barry and Don Black
