Mmm mmm diamond
Oh diamond
(Diamond)

Diamond in da ruff
Someone that you don't meet twice

We left the Brickz for the 'Burbs' turned Mo into Remy
Matching fur coats and Fendi from the bus to a Bentley
Coupe with a closet full of shoes, yeah

Than our smiles turned to frowns ups turned to downs
I don't know where I'm going now
I think about her every once in awhile

We started out like Bobby and Whitney, Justin and Britney
Then it all got ugly, if it weren't for the money
You said I start actin' funny but what's wrong witcha honey
Then the good turned to bad forgot what we had
Is it to late to get it back? I think about her more than once in awhile

Like when I spot a rainbow or see a fallin' star
A set of twins, or a classic car
A four leaf clover, or a two dollar bill
It's so rare that it's so unreal

And I don't know how to get over her smile
I wonder what she's doin'
(What's goin' on?)
I think about her every once in awhile
(Once in awhile)

I should've came with a ring, set a date for next May
Guess I thought that you'd wait
Now I hate that I took so long
Played around wit' her now she's gone

Now my smiles turned to frowns, ups turned to downs
And I don't know where I'm goin'
(Now, now, now, now)
I think about her every once in awhile

We argued like Archie and Edith
Like Ike turned on Tina but I really didn't mean it
I was raised not to hit a woman
Especially not the one I'm lovin'

But when the good turned to bad happy to sad
I wish we could take it back
(How I miss you baby)
I think about her every once in awhile

Like when I spot a rainbow or see a fallin' star
A set of twins, or a classic car
A four leaf clover or a two dollar bill
It's so rare that it's so unreal

I don't know how to get over her smile
I wonder what she's doin' now
I think about her every once in awhile

Your like a star shinning in the broad daylight
Something you don't see all the time
And now I finally recognize
That I shoulda made you all mine

Never shoulda let you pass me by
You put that sparkle in my life
Someone that you don't meet twice
I'm gonna live to regret it baby, ooh
Baby, baby I miss you need you yeah
