Walk around with your hands up in the air...
Didn’t anybody tell you? Didn’t anybody tell you?
How could you just let it all just fall?
Let it all fall to the ground?
You’re laughing and smiling, all your friends
They’re just puttin’ you down

Diamonds won’t help...
Velvet, your Velvet Underground records won’t help
They won’t help you now, oh no no no no no
Oh no, oh no no no

I want to believe in God
but He never seems to show Himself around
I want’a believe in people
but they always seem to let me down

Diamonds won’t help...
Velvet, your Velvet Underground records won’t help
They won’t help you now, oh no no no no no
Oh no, oh no no no

Walk around with your hands up in the air...
Didn’t anybody tell you? Didn’t anybody tell you...

Diamonds won’t help...
Velvet, your Velvet Underground records won’t help

Velvet, your Velvet Underground records won’t help
they won’t help you now, oh no no no no no
Oh no, oh no no no no no no
