​Bling Bling

This song is by UB40 and appears on the album Who You Fighting For? (2005).

Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, emerald cut ring
Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, chapparit and ting

Fifty men dead for this golden chain
Each link forged by a poor man's pain
Mined from below with sweat and fear
Brought to a shine with a widow's tear

Fifty men dead for this diamond ring
Dat takes the shine off the cheap bling thing
Kind a mek you think it no bonafide
Fi wear souvenirs from the men that died

Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, emerald cut ring
Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, chapparit and ting

If you really love me then don't buy me a ring
Diamonds and pearls they don't mean anything
All that I want is already here
Sitting by my side, you got nothing to fear

Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, emerald cut ring
Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, chapparit and ting

Fifty men dead for this golden band
Underground with a pick in their hand
Cutting dirt where the sun nuh shine
Digging to survive in the man's goldmine

How many dead for this royal crown
This holy shrine we gather round
Worship the dollar, pon your hands & knee
Humbled in the presence of your jewellery

Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, emerald cut ring
Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, chapparit and ting

If you really love me then don't buy me a ring
Diamonds & pearls they don't mean anything
All that I want is already here
Sitting by my side, you got nothing to fear

Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, emerald cut ring
Bling bling, yeah, aweh mi simting
Bling bling, chapparit and ting
