Call me diamond, call me gold
I have been bought, been sold
I've been hung up, been laid
been exalted, been betrayed
I've been killed, I have been maimed
I've been freed, been tamed.

Oh, come on, come on, dig my mine.
Oh, come on, come on kiss me, kiss me
all along my spine.

Call me diamond, call me gold
Been in the fire so hot, been in the ice so cold
Been in the summer, winter, spring and fall
Been in the everything, I've been in the nothing at all.
