Out on the street for a living
Picture's only begun
Got you under their thumb
Hit it

Out on the streets for a living
Picture's only begun
Your day is sorrow and madness
Got you under their thumb

Whoo, black diamond

Whoo, black diamond

Darkness will fall on the city
It seems to follow you too
And though you don't ask for pity
There's nothin' that you can do, no, no

Whoo, black diamond

Whoo, black diamond

Out on the street for a living
Picture's only begun
Your day is sorrow and madness
Got you under their thumb

Whoo, black diamond, yeah

Whoo, black diamond

    General CommentBlack Diamond was written by Paul Stanley of KISS, and Performed by Peter Criss, although the first line is sung by Paul. Anyways, this song is written about Street hookers that paul often saw around New York City during the 1970's. in which, there are all the street hookers, but the one sort of, Queen of them all, is the 'Black Diamond'
