LYRICS

"MAYBACHS & DIAMONDS"

CHORUS

And so I give her

What she wants, what she needs

Why

'Cause her love is worth more than 

Maybachs and diamonds, yeah



VERSE 1

You got them big dreams in your eyes

You're thinkin' Hollywood

If I could be your Woody Allen, then I probably would

Write a nice script, make you my lead girl

Put your talent on display for the free world

Liz Taylor, you're lookin' for that right man

I'm black all your ex's they've been white men

But don't that make it more excitin'?

If that's a crime I'm ready for the indictment

Yeah, I think it's way more sexy

When you speak your mind, you check me

And you're color blind you just accept me

Plus you're a smart girl, you know where them checks be

Right here, plus you got your own too

Since I met you, you've been standing on your own two

And so there's nothing that I won't do

Maybach, chrome shoes, every time I come through



CHORUS



VERSE2

We used to argue, I would call you a f*ckin' bitch

But we made it through the storm now we're f*ckin' rich

You've been a friend to me

You kept it real when others would just pretend to be

I couldn't see it then, I would get mad when you criticized

Told you that you were buggin', you over analyzed

I know I said I didn't care we was breakin' up

Still flew half way around the world to make it up

And all the first-class seats were sold out

But it was Summer where you were and for me was cold out

So, like a champion after defeat

You watched me break down and cry in the passenger seat

You put your arm around me, told me it would be just fine

I'd be yours and you would be just mine

And you wanted the LOVE bracelet, I said you get what you pay for

The black card - we're buying the Cartier store
