About

Jimmy Buffett – Diamond As Big As The Ritz Lyrics

Lyrics

Hidden in the mountains
Under the earth and stone
A cubic mile of perfection
A treasure no one has known

One man came upon this mother load
Built himself a thousand room chateau

He's the emperor of diamonds
Master of the prize
He's got a hold on happiness
And all that money can buy

Everyday he lives in fascination
This is not an everyday temptation

It was a diamond as big as the Ritz
What you gonna do with this, tell me
Who's gonna save you when your a slave to
The diamond as big as the Ritz

A blessing can become a curse
If you keep it to yourself
Your 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

It way a diamond as big as the Ritz
What you gonna do with this
Who's gonna save you when your a slave to
The diamond as big as the Ritz

Coal under pressure
Sparkle of treasure
Crystalline measure
Ornamental pleasure
In the corner of your eye
Make a grown man cry
All the seeds you've sown

Greed can crumble castle walls
Greed can purchase you thrills
Power is a dangerous thing
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
Who's gonna save you when your a slave to
The 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 gonna save you when you're a slave to
The diamond as big as the Ritz
