Big diamonds, big blue diamonds on her finger, oh yeah
Instead of a little band of gold
Big diamonds, big blue diamonds, tell the story, oh yeah
Of the love that no one man could ever hold
She wanted more than I had money to buy
So she left me and got lonesome, I am told
Big diamonds, big blue diamonds, now she'll trade them, oh yeah,
For the love behind a little band of gold
Big diamonds, big blue diamonds, how they sparkle, oh yeah
But what can they do to warm your soul?
When you're lonesome in the moonlight and you want some love
Big diamonds,Big blue diamonds, they are so reckless and bold?
I'd gladly do my part to mend her broken heart
But a love that's warmed over, grows cold
Big diamonds, big blue diamonds, I don't want them, no more
I just want a love behind a band of gold
