    Lyrics

    (a-wa) O kodwa you zo-nge li-sa namhlange
    (a-wa a-wa) Si-bona kwenze ka kanjani
    (a-wa a-wa) Amanto mbazane ayeza
    She's a rich girl
    She don't try to hide it
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    He's a poor boy
    Empty as a pocket
    Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose
    Sing Ta na na
    Ta na na na

    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    People say she's crazy
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Well that's one way to lose these
    Walking blues
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    She was physically forgotten
    Then she slipped into my pocket
    With my car keys
    She said you've taken me for granted
    Because I please you
    Wearing these diamonds

    And I could say Oo oo oo
    As if everybody knows
    What I'm talking about
    As if everybody would know
    Exactly what I was talking about
    Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    She makes the sign of a teaspoon
    He makes the sign of a wave
    The poor boy changes clothes
    And puts on after-shave
    To compensate for his ordinary shoes

    And she said honey take me dancing
    But they ended up by sleeping
    In a doorway
    By the bodegas and the lights on
    Upper Broadway
    Wearing diamonds on the soles of their shoes

    And I could say Oo oo oo
    As if everybody here would know
    What I was talking about
    I mean everybody here would know exactly
    What I was talking about
    Talking about diamonds

    People say I'm crazy
    I got diamonds on the soles of my shoes
    Well that's one way to lose
    These walking blues
    Diamonds on the soles of our shoes
