Common - Diamonds Lyrics

Hook:
Oh, oh, oh
Walk up in the thing, got my campaign popping
Champagne popping, bad thing popping.
Headed to the door and ain’t a damn thing knocking, no!
Walk up in the thing and everybody with me mobbing
Campaign popping, champagne popping.

I wrote this on my born day, it was a warm day
Niggas gotta eat, we gonna do it gourmet.
I’m hearing fucking voices, like when porn play
Stay, stay on your grind like foreplay.
What more can I say? Diamonds off for the day
That means to shine, you find a way
Stayed on porches, backyards, and gangways
Learned strange ways between Cole and Langley
Champagne ambitions, I pour it out for my man who made his transition
Wars about paper, pussy, pride and ego
Born to fly, call me the bald eagle.
Open shows at the Regal for Daddy Kane and Eazy-E, though
Boys in the hood is hard like kilos of heroin.
The hero that came from zero
My bars and my PR like Puerto Rico
This bra from the DR said I was frío
That’s Ice Cold like Drake, triple three yo
Pinot noir style, better with time
I’m gambling with watches getting better with time.
So I’mma ride this out for long as God allow me
They say “time is money,” forever is my salary
I shine tomorrow with what I do today
Yo, get this money, put the diamonds on display!

Hook :
Oh, oh, oh
Walk up in the thing and got my campaign popping
Champagne popping, bad thing popping
Headed to the door, and ain’t a damn thing knocking (no)
Walk up in the thing and everybody with me mobbing
Campaign popping, champagne popping
Hit you with the street sweeper now you gotta get to mopping , no!
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Tryna get it every way, every day
Tryna get it every way, every day
Tryna get it every way, every day

Bars in alignment, stars in alignment
Raw off consignment, God’s in the diamonds
Evolve from the science, power and refinement
Read between the lines, hard to define us.
Niggas that’s behind us throwing up signs to signify us
In the Benz leaning like we biased.
I’ve seen Len Bias, that shit scared me
You can go pro and blow everything you have in a flash
The moment is to live it like your last
Moments that we have never living in the last
My time, man, precious like diamonds
Look through the glass, see what I magnify, man!
I'mma be shining till I die man
I’m a rare diamond that’s hard to find, man!
Climbing to the mountain top, MLK day
To the streets I speak my piece like an A.K
47 to 87 to the hundreds
Jewels I could run it for the hunted and the blunted
Dreams reflect clarity, ain’t no disparity
Between peace and prosperity, so marry me, Diamond!

Reminiscing when I had everything on layaway
I’m rolling with me and my partner like it was training day
Way before the baling that was back off in the training days
I used to hit the barber chair and say “I need that fade away”
Had a crush on what’s her name?
The feelings never fade away!
Older brother gang bang, banging like an 808
Said you can’t take his chain away
Real player you can’t take this game away
Slang away, walk up in this thing like a real Rockefeller, feller!
But you can’t take my dame away,
Devil in a red dress, but she got that angel face
I could teach her how to get it day to day to day to day
The G code is my combination
Catch me off in the bank thumbing through all kinds of faces
Catch me off in court, beating all kinds of cases
Weed, money, pussy, liquor, that’s my favorite compilation
Diamonds!
Diamonds!
