Paul Simon

Paul Frederic Simon (born October 13, 1941) is an award-winning musician whose talents in composing, performing, and vocal harmony placed him at the forefront of the singer-songwriters on an international scale. Simon's fame, influence and commercial success began as part of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, formed in 1964 with musical partner Art Garfunkel. Simon wrote most of the pair's songs, including three that reached No. 1 on the U.S. singles charts: "The Sounds of Silence," "Mrs. Robinson," and "Bridge Over Troubled Water." The duo split up in 1970 at the height of their popularity, and Simon began a successful solo career, recording three highly acclaimed albums over the next five years.

(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
