I know that I'm a diamond
But you don't gotta treat me like one
I know I shine like platinum
And I'm about as real as they come
And I don't like the way you're doing me
You wear me then you put me away
Can't come out until you want me
And I can't let you keep it this way

[Chorus: x2]
I don't like the way that you be shining me
You be treating me like jewelry
Then you turn around and you stash me
You be treating me like jewelry

This has become a problem
You watch me like you're security
You place me under lock and key
Like someone's gonna run away with me
You keep the same old stories
You say that you're protecting me
But you only worry how long before you lose me

[Chorus: x2]

You make me feel like I'm your jewelry
I'm not your jewelry, don't put me on display 
You make me feel like I'm your property
Why don't you show me some respect

So now make your decision
Do you think that you could untie my hands
You know that you'd be stressing
If you were no longer my man
And there's no combination
I can leave you anytime that I choose
So if you don't believe me
I guess you will just look like a fool

[Chorus: x2]

You make me feel like I'm your jewelry
You make me feel like I'm your jewelry
