Diamonds

 Looking for direction, the mighty Amazon
 Only one ambition, to find the precious stone
 When I was a boy it was a vision
 Now it all just seems like deja-vu
 Maybe it was all a premonition
 Searchin' for treasure in the land of Peru, ooh
 Diamonds (diamonds) up, down, in and out of the Amazon
 Diamonds (diamonds) he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
 Saw the holy temple, a man was on his knees
 Sacrificion ceremony, the Gods they wanna please, oh
 Then the people shouted with emotion
 Try to scale the giant pyramid
 Following the writing on the sandstone
 (saying the stone was in the room of the dead) oh no no no
 Diamonds (diamonds) up, down, in and out of the Amazon
 Diamonds (diamonds) he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
 Oh burning with fever, I'm dying of hunger
 I'm searching all night, searching all night, all night
 Then I jumped and run into the jungle
 The solid ground gave way beneath my feet
 Fallen inside an icy tomb forever
 (the rock he was after is now out of reach)
 Diamonds (diamonds) up, down, in and out the Amazon
 Diamonds (diamonds) he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
 Diamonds (diamonds) up, down, in and out the Amazon
 Diamonds (diamonds) he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
 Diamonds (diamonds) up, down, in and out of the Amazon
 Diamonds (diamonds) he won't stop, the kid goes on and on
