Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes

E
(a-wa) O kodwa u zo-nge li-sa namhlange
(a-wa a-wa) Si-bona kwenze ka kanjani
(a-wa a-wa) Amanto mbazane ayeza

She's a rich girl
She don't try to hide it
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
He's a poor boy
Empty as a pocket
Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose

She was physically forgotten
         Bb              C              F
Then she slipped into my pocket with my car keys
                Bb           C
She said you've taken me for granted
          F
Because I please you

To compensate for his ordinary shoes

And she said, honey, take me dancing

By the bodegas and the lights on upper Broadway
