And I could say Oo oo oo As if everybody knows What I'm talking about As if everybody would know Exactly what I was talking about Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes. She makes the sign of a teaspoon He makes the sign of a wave The poor boy changes clothes And puts on after-shave To compensate for his ordinary shoes. And she said honey take me dancing But they ended up by sleeping In a doorway By the bodegas and the lights on Upper Broadway Wearing diamonds on the soles of their shoes .

Paul Simon considered writing political songs for Graceland, but decided against it, since he wasn't very good at it and the point of the project was to bring the sound of South Africa to the world, not the politics. He worked very hard to lace the lyrics around the tracks, which was tricky since there was so much going on in the rhythms. The result on this song was a lot of clever wordplay and an abstract story about a rich girl in New York City and her suitors. k views · View 9 Upvoters. Thank you for your feedback!
