"Diamonds are for never (for you)"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The song is a parody of a slightly feministic hit comparing men to diamonds. This time it is about a smart guy who knows that girls only fall for wealth.
Diamonds are for never,
I know what you need
I know, it's only your greed
I see your sight at them
I'm not stupid or brainless or blind
Diamonds are for never,
You're to poor to keep them
And you're to stupid to steal them
I can see all that
You have to marry with my diamonds

I don't need them,
For what good will wealth do me?
It's only a piece of glass to me
But when they're gone
I'll be so alone

Diamonds are for never,
Please, don't look at me like that
That was a very nice chit-chat
But, i won't marry you
The diamonds are my lovers!

I don't need them,
For what good will wealth do me?
It's only a glass to me
But when they're gone
I'll be so alone

Diamonds are for never, for never, for never.
Diamonds are for never, for never, for never.
For never and never.
