Diamonds are forever
They won't leave in the night
Have no fear that they might
Desert me

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, ever ever

Close your eyes and imagine, feel the magic
Vegas on acid
Seen through Yves Saint 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, well sort of
I think 'em
That mean I forgot better shit than you ever thought of

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 it's only right that I let the top drop on a drop-top Porsche

It's for yourself that's important
If yo're stripper name Porsche
And you 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

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, 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 seeing 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

It's Kanye but some of my plaques, 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 caeser

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, yeah he next up

People askin' is I 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 okay man?"
They pray for the death of our dynasty like Amen
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, ever ever

Diamonds are forever
(Forever, forever)
Diamonds are forever
(Forever, forever, forever)
