      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "Diamond As Big As The Ritz"

      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
