I'm just an old chunk of coal
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day

I'm gonna grow and glow 'til I'm so blue, pure perfect
I'm gonna put a smile on everybody's face

But I'm gonna kneel and pray everyday
Lest I should become vain along the way

I'm just an old chunk of coal, now Lord
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day

I'm gonna learn the right way to talk
I'm gonna search and find a better way to walk
