Looking for direction, the mighty Amazon
Only one ambition, to find the precious stone
When I was a boy it was a vision

Now it all just seems like deja-vu
Maybe it was all a premonition
Searchin' for treasure in the land of Peru, ooh

Diamonds up, down, in and out of the Amazon
(Diamonds)
Diamonds, he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
(Diamonds)

Saw the holy temple, a man was on his knees
Sacrificion ceremony, the Gods they wanna please, oh
Then the people shouted with emotion

Try to scale the giant pyramid
Following the writing on the sandstone
(Saying the stone was in the room of the dead)
Oh, no, no, no

Diamonds up, down, in and out of the Amazon
(Diamonds)
Diamonds he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
(Diamonds)

Oh, burning with fever, I'm dying of hunger
I'm searching all night, searching all night, all night

Then I jumped and run into the jungle
The solid ground gave way beneath my feet
Fallen inside an icy tomb forever
(The rock he was after is now out of reach)

Diamonds up, down, in and out the Amazon
(Diamonds)
Diamonds he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
(Diamonds)

Diamonds up, down, in and out the Amazon
(Diamonds)
Diamonds he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
(Diamonds)

Diamonds up, down, in and out of the Amazon
(Diamonds)
Diamonds he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
(Diamonds)
