Incredible String Band – Dust Be Diamonds lyrics

I paid for a plow, it was heavy as lead.
Tired in my body, I wished for a bed.
When I lay claim to nothing, seems everything is mine.
When I lay claim to nothing...

Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.

King Jesus he wispered, 'It is not so far'
And Buddha declared, 'It is right where you are'.
Oh tell me how many tears have you cried,
Tell me how many...

Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.

The things that you claim are the things you will be,
And the actions of now are tomorrow's memory.
So buy for a million, sell for a dime.
Buy for a million...

Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.

Somebody tells you the world's all wrong,
And somebody tells you the road is so long.
And if you have an argument please see your mind.
If you have an argument...

Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.

The man on the corner is singing the blues,
And the man in the office is studying the news.
So you're looking for trouble, so trouble you'll find.
So you're looking for trouble...

Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.

I used to have to wind up my clockwork heart
And my face was addicted and I did not feel part.
So look at the end act, see my secret crime.
Look at the end act...

Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time.
Dust be diamonds, water be wine
Happy happy happy
All the time time time
