Digging For Diamonds
(Winters, Sherman)

She lives her life through her numbers
Lucky numbers to be sure
Ages and birthdays and symbols
Lining up for one major score

She dreams of life on the Riviera
Wearing a tiara waving at the crowd
Sipping champagne and laughing
She’s rich and happy and unbowed

She’s digging for diamonds
Wading in the river panning for gold
It’s gonna take a miracle to find them
But maybe miracles are possible

He spends his days following horses
Shouting out curses as they circle around
Could be morning could be night
He can’t remember May or September
Up or down

And the voices in his head are telling him instead
Place your bets now this’ll be the one

Gonna take a miracle but you never know
Better than no chance at all

He’s digging for diamonds…

Digging for diamonds
Diamonds and gold
Digging for diamonds
This’ll be the one

What if those numbers turned into dollars
What if your ship finally came in
And if a lover would say forever
And you stay together
Do you win

And I’m digging for diamonds…

And we’re all digging for diamonds…
