This song is dedicated to all the mammas. 
All the beautiful women. 
No matter what color. 
My mamma Marie, Robin's mom Gloria 
Yeah we see you shinin' (we see you shinin') 
You all diamonds (we see you shinin') 
We love you (Like a diamond) 

Like a butterfly, you made your way out to the shell 
Ooh, Like and angel, you finally got your wings 
And all of the promises you made yourself 
Are finally taking shape 
You can only hold something so beautiful down so long 
Until it finds the light of day 

[Chorus]
Pressure builds diamonds (Aretha) 
Shining so (Kiesha) bright for you to see (Paula) 
Pressure (Beyonce) builds diamonds (Mary) 
Sparkling (Halle) for everyone to see (Oprah) 
Pressure (Rihanna) builds diamonds (Latifah) 
Shinin' (Michelle Obama) so bright 

Uh, Picture a cold winter 
Me, you , middle women hat and dinner 
Philipe Childs a mister 
Its the Robin Hood and the plot gets thicker 
I know you think I'm bout my girl 
My mamma, my unborn daughter, my world 
But daddy used to beat you harder than the five barrels 
He left you in the ocean and you came back a pearl 
He put you through hell, I put you in diamonds 
Forget about that nigga, we don't need him Mamma! 
I know your only son was drama 
You wanted Obama but he was Osama 
On the block in its suicide bomber 
Then I got shot and went to jail comma 
If that ain't karma, me and my girl lost a baby in the womb 
And it changed my armor 

Pressure builds diamonds (Aretha) 
Shining so (Kiesha) 
Bright for you to see (Paula) 
Pressure (Beyonce) 
Builds diamonds (Mary) 
Sparkling (Halle) 
For everyone to see (Oprah) 
Pressure (Rihanna) 
Builds diamonds (Latifah) 
Shinin' (Michelle Obama) 
So bright 

All the ladies in the back (I see you shinin') 
All the girls in the front (I see you shinin') 
Everybody with ya diamonds (I see ya shinin') 
Yeah keep on shinin', yeah keep on (Like a diamond girl) 
All the women across the world (I see ya shinin') 
Especially my girl (keep shinin' girl) 

Just like the ocean makes the pearl 
Pressure builds diamonds 
(diamonds, pressure builds diamonds)
You can only hold something so beautiful down so long 
'Til it finds the light of day 

Pressure builds diamonds (Aretha) 
Shining so (Kiesha) 
Bright for you to see (Paula) 
Pressure (Beyonce)  
Builds diamonds (Mary) 
Sparkling (Halle) 
For everyone to see (Oprah) 
Pressure (Rihanna) 

Pressure builds diamonds (Aretha) 
Shining so (Kiesha) 
Bright for you to see (Paula) 
Pressure (Beyonce) 
Builds diamonds (Mary) 
Sparkling (Halle) 
For everyone to see (Oprah) 
Pressure (Rihanna)
Builds diamonds (Latifah)
I see you shining baby (Michelle Obama) 
I see you shining baby, diamonds, 
I see you shining baby, diamonds, 
Like a diamond baby, diamonds, 
I see you shining baby, diamonds, 
I see you shining baby, diamonds
