Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix)

Diamonds are forever
They're all I need to please me
They can't stimulate or tease me
They won't leave in the night
Have no fear that they might
Desert me

"Diamonds are forever forever forever"
Throw ya diamonds in the sky
If you feel the vibe
"Diamonds are forever forever forever"
The ROC is still alive
Everytime I rhyme
"Forever and ever!"
For ever ever? for ever ever? ever ever?
Ever ever? ever ever? ever ever? ever ever?

[Verse 1]
Good Morning, this ain't Vietnam still (Allusion to Bob Hope)
People lose hands, legs, arms for real (People are hurt here)
Little was known of Sierra Leone (No one cares about here)
And how it connect to the diamonds we own (But it affects us in a very real way)
When I speak of Diamonds in this song (when I say diamonds)
I ain't talkin bout the ones that be glown (real diamonds)
I'm talkin bout Rocafella, my home, (the record label) my chain
These ain't conflict diamonds,is they Jacob? (I hope these diamonds aren't from Sierra Leone)don't lie to me mayne
See, a part of me sayin' keep shinin', (don't worry about it)
How? when I know of the blood diamonds (I can't stop worrying about it)
Though it's thousands of miles away (far away)
Sierra Leone connect to what we go through today (it affects us here)
Over here, its a drug trade, we die from drugs (we die from drugs)
Over there, they die from what we buy from drugs (they die because of the diamonds)
The diamonds, the chains, the bracelets, the charmses (all these things)
I thought my Jesus Piece was so harmless
'til I seen a picture of a shorty armless
And here's the conflict
It's in a black person's soul to rock that gold (black people are pressured into wanting bling)
Spend ya whole life tryna get that ice (spend your life trying to get some diamonds)
On a polo rugby it look so nice (but it looks good)
How could somethin' so wrong make me feel so right, right? (I hate it makes me feel good)
'fore I beat myself up like Ike (this probably just rhymes)
You could still throw ya Rocafella diamond tonight, 'cause


[Verse 2]
[Kanye From Original Song]
People askin' me is I'm gon' give my chain back (uh)(I'm not trading it in)
That'll be the same day I give the game back (uh)
You know the next question dog 'yo, where Dame at?'(uh)
This track the Indian dance to bring our reign back (such a clever pun)(whoo!)
'wassup wit you a Jay man, are ya'll okay man?'

I got it from her 'ye damn!
The chain remains, the game is in tact (we're strong)
The name is mine, I'll take blame for that (I founded this record company)
The pressure's on, but guess who ain't gon' crack? (not me)[laughs]
Pardon me I had to laugh at that
How could you falter when you're the rock of gibralter ( I can't lose)
I had to get of the boat so I could walk on water (to prove myself, I had to test myself. no safety nets)
This ain't no tall order, this is nothin to me
Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week (favorite line in the whole song)
I do this in my sleep,
I sold Kilos of coke, (so?) I'm guessin' I can sell CD's (you can)
I'm not a businessman, I'm a business, man
Let me handle my buisness, damn!
Kanyeez you got me, Freeway and Foxy
YG', Teairra Mari, Petey watch me
Bleek could be one hit away his whole career
As long as I'm alive, he's a millionaire (this is how strong we are)
And even if I die, he's in my will somewhere
So he can just kick back and chill somewhere, oh yeah
He don't even have to write rhymes
The Dynasty like my money last three lifetimes
Shirley Bassey was in the rear sayin exactly
What I was sayin practically me whole carreer (great flow)
The diamond is forever, I been mindin' this forever
Now the Louis Vuitton Don's timin' couldn't be better
People lined up to see the Titanic sinkin' (they thought we would die. but we won't)
Instead we rose from the ash like a phoenix
If you waitin' for the end, the dynasty signed
And what seemed like forever is a mighty long time
I'm young bitches [laughs]
