About Diamond Rings

"Diamond Rings" is the third single released from British rapper Chipmunk's debut studio album, I Am Chipmunk (2009). The song was produced by Naughty Boy and released digitally on 5 July 2009. It features uncredited vocals from Emeli Sandé, who performed the chorus of the song. Chipmunk told Rewind RWD magazine about the lyrics: "It’s not about being flash and spending money though; it’s more about maintaining your value. It’s about feeling good out there." The song samples "Miss Ska-Culation" by Roland Al and the Soul Brothers.

I grind grind, that's why I shine shine
And you can roll anyone of my shows
No lights in my bag no eye sight 
You can't see, I gotta keep on rhymin', man
So I keep on shinin', man 
I ain't gonna be a one hit wonder
I am forever, call me Diamond Man

I've been talkin' 'bout my new diamond rings 
Because my new diamond rings, they're the shit 
Oh oh oh, you've been talkin' 'bout my new diamond rings 
Because my new diamond rings
They're what's in 
And if you're looking at me
You gon' be looking at them 
'Cause they're the swagger that you see in my walk 
And if you're listening to me
You gon' be listening to them 
'Cause they're the slick that you hear in my talk 

Hit me one screen, West End 
(Flawless) shine like I'm a girl's best friend (diamonds) 
Girls see me and scream 'cause I'm on the TV
But I still take walks in my ends 
Fourteen when I entered the game 
All I wanted was a little bit of fame (just a bit) 
And now I'm fuckin' with the grown-ups 
Go mad like, shit, I forgot my age 
Oh, Chipmunk, you so cute 
I'm a call you the Diamond Dude 
And my rings got so many carrots 
And you usually call this rabbit food 
And the styles is custom made 
No water involved, I pay 
Good Lord, I remember the days 
I pray for Roland Cartier 

I've been talkin' 'bout my new diamond rings 
Because my new diamond rings, they're the shit 
Oh oh oh, you've been talkin' 'bout my new diamond rings 
Because my new diamond rings
They're what's in 
And if you're looking at me
You gon' be looking at them 
'Cause they're the swagger that you see in my walk 
And if you're listening to me
You gon' be listening to them 
'Cause they're the slick that you hear in my talk 

Ey, ah, see I'm such a classy guy (yeah, I know) 
Designer shades hide my eyes 
I know, Lord, with a face like mine 
How the hell could I be camera shy (tell me that)
I make it look easy, man 
But that don't mean that it's easy man (no, it ain't) 
I got my middle finger up to the world 
With a ring on the thing 'cause I froze my hand 
Yeah, in that position, right back, clear your position 
I'm everythin' you're not, you work, I'm a boss 
I reverent run this, man 
And I could turn your house into mine 
And I could turn your girl into mine (one time) 
I'm a stay in my grind, you could be that, on my life 
Never let a nigga take my shine 

I've been talkin' 'bout my new diamond rings 
Because my new diamond rings, they're the shit 
Oh oh oh, you've been talkin' 'bout my new diamond rings 
Because my new diamond rings
They're what's in 
And if you're looking at me
You gon' be looking at them 
'Cause they're the swagger that you see in my walk 
And if you're listening to me
You gon' be listening to them 
'Cause they're the slick that you hear in my talk
