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

Sing Ta na na
Ta na na na
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes


People say she's crazy
She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes

Well that's one way to lose these walking blues
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

She was physically forgotten
Then she slipped into my pocket
With my car keys

She said you've taken me for granted
Because I please you
Wearing these diamonds


And I could say Oo oo oo
As if everybody knows
What I'm talking about
As if everybody would know
Exactly what I was talking about
Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes


She makes the sign of a teaspoon
He makes the sign of a wave

The poor boy changes clothes
And puts on after-shave
To compensate for his ordinary shoes


And she said honey take me dancing
But they ended up sleeping
In a doorway
By the bodegas and the lights on
Upper Broadway
Wearing diamonds on the soles of their shoes


And I could say Oo oo oo
As if everybody here would know
What I was talking about
I mean everybody here would know exactly
What I was talking about
Talking about diamonds


People say I'm crazy
I got diamonds on the soles of my shoes

Well that's one way to lose these walking blues
Diamonds on the soles of your shoes
