"Four Little Diamonds" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
I used to think she was the greatest thing
I really cared, gave her a diamond ring
She said she'd rather die than ever leave me
Well I never saw her face since then
And if the law don't get her then I will
Four little diamonds

She must be somewhere on the open road
She always said she was a lonely one
She gets you down with her tales of woe
She took me for everything
And if the law don't get her then I will
Four little diamonds

I looked around I climbed up high into the dawn
But she was gone with the night
I thought about the things she said
And all the things we'd done
But where could she run- she ran away
There's just no answer to give

I keep wonderin' about her, day and night
She probably thinks I was a fool- she's right
She don't know it
But I'm gonna keep on searchin' for that woman
I'm gonna search everywhere
And if the law don't get her then I will
Four little diamonds

I looked around I climbed up high into the dawn
But she was gone with the night
I thought about the things she said
And all the things we'd done
But where could she run- she ran away
There's just no answer to give

I still hear her callin' out to me
I still listen for her endlessly
But it never even crossed my mind she was a cheater
I gotta find where she hides
'Cause if the law don't get her then I will
Four little diamonds

    My InterpretationI always think of this song as "Dont' Bring Me Down - Part 2" both in terms of sound, and the underlying relationship that fell apart. Play them back-to-back and you see what I mean.

    Jeff Lynne is a musical genius - period.

    General CommentI love this song, but should it be 'one little diamond'? Most engagement rings are solitaires, aren't they?

    General CommentMy favorite part is the intro. It goes like this... "After four.. FOUR!". I can't help laughing out loud everytime I listen to this song. It's funny that this is so funny to me.
