Diamond As Big As The Ritz Lyrics

Hidden in the mountains under the earth and stone
A cubic mile of perfection treasure no one has known
One man came upon this mother lode
Built himself a thousand room chateau

He's the emperor of diamonds master of the prize
He's got the hold on happiness and all that money can buy
Everyday he lives in fascination
This is not an everyday temptation, no

It's the diamond as big as the ritz
What you gonna do with this?
Tell me who's goin' to save you
When you're a slave to the
Diamond as big as the ritz

A blessing can become a curse if you keep it to yourself
Our own exaggeration is not so good for your health
It's the prophecy of the unattainable dream
If you take one look behind the shine
It doesn't always gleam

Everyday he lives in fascination
This is not an everyday temptation, no

It's the diamond as big as the ritz
What you gonna do with this?
Tell me, who's goin' to save you
When you're a slave to a
Diamond as big as the ritz

(Diamond, diamond, diamond, diamond, diamond)
Coal under pressure
(Diamond)
Sparkle of treasure
(Diamond)
Crystalline measure
(Diamond)
On a mental pleasure
(Diamond)
In the corner of your eye
(Diamond)
Make a grown man cry
(Diamond)
All the seeds you've sown
(Diamond)

Greed can crumble your castle walls greed can purchase you thrills
Power is a dangerous drug it can maim, it can kill
It's the prophecy of the unattainable dream
If you take one look behind the shine it doesn't always gleam

It was a diamond as big as the ritz
What you gonna do with this?
Tell me, who's goin' to save you
When you're a slave to a
Diamond as big as the ritz

It was a diamond as big as the ritz
What you gonna do with this?
Tell me, who's goin' to save you
When you're a slave to a
Diamond as big as the ritz
