Uncut, Unpolished Diamond

not realising what you have already got... and ruining it

How many times do we say things we don't mean to say?

Or we do mean; but they come out the wrong way!

So many times I've re-written this play...

And still I managed to ruin the day.

I can losethe sunshine on a tropical island

Uncut, unpolished diamond

Loud-mouthed, hot-headed firebrand

Uncut, unpolished diamond

How many times do we do things we don't mean to do?

Or do mean; but just not with you!

So many times I've thought it all through...

Still I manage to make you feel blue.

I can losethe sunshine on a tropical island

Uncut, unpolished diamond

Loud- mouthed, hot-headed firebrand

Uncut, Unpolished diamond

How many times do we open our mouth before we think?

Or do think; but succumb to drink?

Too many times I cringe and I blink...

Further into my own grave I sink.

I can lose the sunshine on a tropical island

Uncut, unpolished diamond

Loud-mouthed, hot-headed firebrand

Uncut, unpolished firebrand

Uncut, unpolished diamond

Uncut, unpolished diamond
