Diamond As Big As The Ritz

This song is by Jimmy Buffett and appears on the album Barometer Soup (1995).

-Verse-
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 motherload
Built himself a thousand room chateau

-Verse-
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

-Chorus-
It's the 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

-Verse-
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

-Repeat Chorus-

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

-Verse-
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

-Repeat Chorus (2x)-
