DIAMONDS
Some folks they like diamonds,
Diamonds big to wear, Diamonds in their bosoms
And diamonds in their hair; But I could be so happy
Yum! Yum! If I only had a chicken
In my finger and my thumb.
The diamonds some folks are wearing
Are scandalous to see, They have diamonds for their breakfast
And diamonds for their tea; But I could be so happy
Yum! Yum! If I only had a chicken
In my finger and my thumb.
There's that old Rastus Johnson,
He got a diamond ring, As big as any war club
Of any African king; But I would be so happy
Yum! Yum! If I only had a chicken
In my finger and my thumb.
