Navy – Diamonds (Official Music Video)

LYRICS

Oh mama, baba
Tout sa yo ja fè nous les noires
Oh ancestor
Vini gadé nous ka mandé sa
Diamonds, Diamonds, Outrageous,
Mines yes, Mindless.

Diamonds on the wristwatch bling the time away
Diamonds on your ear so you’re not hearing what I say
Diamonds for the price of the African slave Shiny things deciphering the dark and the shade
Diamonds in the system, empty be the plate Bruised hands and feet of the child in the trade
Diamonds on the menu swipe a life away Plenty in revenue for the state

Oh mama, baba
Tout sa yo ja fè nous les noires
Oh ancestor
Vini gadé nous ka mandé sa

Diamonds of a people, sitting on the crown
Faces of the ugly trade burdened with a frown
Diamonds in a wedding ring you show it to the town
While the escalating trade requires suffering
Keep it to yourself then,
I don’t want to hear Maybe you can help them, see then you can tell
Diamonds for submission, a dollar for the wage
Mercy for the soul born a slave

 

Oh mama, baba
Tout sa yo ja fè nous les noires
Oh ancestor
Vini gadé nous ka mandé sa

Diamonds in your memories
Tuck’ em all away
Citing all the emptiness for the price you paid
Calling on the mother land to wash away the pain
Waiting on another one to end up in a cage
Ignorance and envy, sacrifice a life
Running up a track and field of who could get it twice
Surplus and vanity you put up on the price
Just another number in the line

Oh mama, baba
Tout sa yo ja fè nous les noires
Oh ancestor
Vini gadé nous ka mandé sa
