I was driving by my old stomping
grounds, thinking of what all
we did when we were young,
I was intimidated,
by your beauty,
the first time we ever spoke.
When I walked up to you
in the lunch line,
I felt my hardest muscle
was the one in my throat.

I tryed to play it cool
and act like Hulk Hogan,
when you asked me what I'd
been smoking.
while all your friends
got their laugh
on me,
I felt the bottom
of the earth had
left me.

Now we're back again but this
time, we ain't in the same
I see you with dreams
you'd been catching
like jar flies.
you had caught
his eye,
and never gave me
the chance to try.

As the light turned
green, I pulled out
slowly looking over my
right shoulder, at
the prettiest thing
I'd ever seen
smiling back
at me.

She's the one that I
been kissing and she
sure didn't leave me
missing you.
I guess its what you're
saving for girl,
the difference it
could be,
in diamonds and pearls.

You're shiney dark hair
just like the rest of
us has gone now,
its turned to gray
and the party dress you
wore I'm sure has been
thrown out.

Her kind,
is what I'm
here for.

everybody gets their worth,
A good woman, can make
a good man want to.

I waved as you smiled.
your diamond and pearls
shining in the sun,
but I was the one
that really won.

I tipped my hat
to him while
he met you
at the curve.

He seemed
to be standing
in my place,
right behind
you all the way.

Diamonds and pearls,
I can see difference
in women and girls.

just a thought my husband gave me, diamonds from a true woman's love can last forever.Pearls when a girl flirts fades.... true relation ships take time to grow,it has to do where their heart is, what their motive is in the beginning.all the woman who grew up still a girl at heart had was the ones around her neck.
