(A-wa) O kodwa you 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
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 by 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 our shoes
