[Intro:]

Diamonds are forever

They're all I need to please me

They can't stimulate or tease me

They won't leave in the night

Have no fear that they might

Desert me


[Hook:]

"Diamonds are forever forever forever"

Throw ya diamonds in the sky

If you feel the vibe

"Diamonds are forever forever forever"

The ROC is still alive

Everytime I rhyme

"Forever and ever! "

For ever ever? for ever ever? ever ever?

Ever ever? ever ever? ever ever? ever ever?


[Verse 1:]

Good Morning, this ain't Vietnam still

People lose hands, legs, arms for real

Little was known of Sierra Leone

And how it connect to the diamonds we own

When I speak of Diamonds in this song

I ain't talkin bout the ones that be glowin

I'm talkin bout Rocafella, my home, my chain

These ain't conflict diamonds, is they Jacob? don't lie to me mayne

See, a part of me sayin' keep shinin',

How? when I know of the blood diamonds

Though it's thousands of miles away

Sierra Leone connect to what we go through today

Over here, it's a drug trade, we die from drugs

Over there, they die from what we buy from drugs

The diamonds, the chains, the bracelets, the charmses

I thought my Jesus Piece was so harmless

'Til I seen a picture of a shorty armless

And here's the conflict

It's in a black person's soul to rock that gold

Spend ya whole life tryna get that ice

On a polo rugby it look so nice

How could somethin' so wrong make me feel so right, right?

'Fore I beat myself up like Ike

You could still throw ya Rocafella diamond tonight, 'cause


[Hook]


[Verse 2:]

[Kanye From Original Song:]

People askin' me is I'm gon' give my chain back (uh)

That'll be the same day I give the game back (uh)

You know the next question dog 'yo, where Dame at? ' (uh)

This track the Indian dance to bring our reign back (whoo!)

'Wassup with you a Jay man, are ya'll okay man? '

[Jay-Z:]

Yep!

I got it from here 'Ye damn!

The chain remains, the game is in tact

The name is mine, I'll take blame for that

The pressure's on, but guess who ain't gon' crack? [laughs]

Pardon me I had to laugh at that

How could you falter when you're the rock of Gibraltar

I had to get off the boat so I could walk on water

This ain't no tall order, this is nothin to me

Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week

I do this in my sleep,

I sold Kilos of coke, (so?) I'm guessin' I can sell CD's

I'm not a businessman, I'm a business, man

Let me handle my business, damn!

Kanyeez you got me, Freeway and Foxy

YG', Teairra Mari, Petey watch me

Bleek could be one hit away his whole career

As long as I'm alive, he's a millionaire

And even if I die, he's in my will somewhere

So he can just kick back and chill somewhere, oh yeah

He don't even have to write rhymes

The Dynasty like my money last three lifetimes

Shirley Bassey was in the rear sayin exactly

What I been sayin practically me whole career

The diamond is forever, I been minin' this forever

Now the Louis Vuitton Don's timin' couldn't be better

People lined up to see the Titanic sinkin'

Instead we rose from the ash like a phoenix

If you waitin' for the end of the dynasty sign

Then what seem like forever is a mighty long time

I'm young bitches [laughs]

Goodnight!
