    Lyrics:
    (A-wa a-wa) o kodwa u zo-nge li-sa namhlange
    (A-wa a-wa) si-bona kwenze ka kanjani
    (A-wa a-wa) amanto mbazane ayeza
    She's a rich girl
    She don't try to hide it
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    He's a poor boy
    Empty as a pocket
    Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose
    Sing ta na na
    Ta na na na
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Ta na na
    Ta na na na
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    People say she's crazy
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Well that's one way to lose these
    Walking blues
    Diamonds on the soles of your shoes

    She was physically forgotten
    And then she slipped into my pocket
    With my car keys
    She said you've taken me for granted
    Because I please you
    Wearing these diamonds
    And I could say oo oo oo
    As if everybody knows
    What I'm talking about
    As if everybody here 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 he 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

    And I could say oo oo oo
    And everybody here would know
    What I was talking about
    I mean everybody here would know exactly
    What I was talking about
    Talking about diamonds

    People say I'm crazy
    I got diamonds on the soles of my shoes
    Well that's one way to lose
    These walking blues
    Diamonds on the soles of my shoes

    Ta na na
    Ta na na na

  • Paul Simon - Graceland & You Can Call Me Al

    9:52

    Hard Rock Calling 2012 (Hyde Park, London)

    Graceland is the title song of the album Graceland, released in 1986 by Paul Simon. The lyrics deal with the singer's thoughts during a road trip to Graceland after the failure of his marriage to actress and author Carrie Fisher. The song won the 1988 Grammy Award for Record of the Year.

    You Can Call Me Al is also a song by Paul Simon, the first single released from his album Graceland. The lyrics can be interpreted as describing a man experiencing a midlife crisis (Where's my wife and family? What if I die here? Who'll be my role model?). However, as Paul Simon himself explained during the Graceland episode of the Classic Albums documentary series, by the third verse the lyrics move from a generic portrait-like perspective to a personal and autobiographical one, as he describes his journey to South Africa which inspired the entire album. The names in the song came from an incident at a party that Simon went to with his then-wife Peggy Harper. French composer and conductor Pierre Boulez, who was attending the same party, mistakenly referred to Paul as Al and to Peggy as Betty, inspiring Simon to write a song.


    Lyrics (Graceland):

    The Mississippi Delta
    Was shining like a National guitar
    I am following the river
    Down the highway
    Through the cradle of the Civil War

    I'm going to Graceland
    Graceland
    In Memphis,Tennessee
    I'm going to Graceland
    Poorboys and pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland
    My traveling companion is nine years old
    He is the child of my first marriage
    But I've reason to believe
    We both will be received
    In Graceland

    She comes back to tell me she's gone
    As if I didn't know that
    As if I didn't know my own bed
    As if I'd never notice
    The way she brushed her hair from
    Her forehead and she said, Losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Everybody sees you're blown apart
    Everybody feels the wind blow

    I'm going to Graceland
    Memphis, Tennessee
    I'm going to Graceland
    Poorboys and pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland
    And my traveling companions
    Are ghosts and empty sockets
    I'm looking at ghosts and empties
    But I've reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland

    There is a girl in New York City
    Who calls herself the human trampoline
    And sometimes when I'm falling, flying
    Or tumbling in turmoil I say
    Whoa, so this is what she means
    She means we're bouncing into Graceland
    And I see losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Everybody sees you're blown apart
    Everybody feels the wind blow

    In Graceland, in Graceland
    I'm going to Graceland
    For reasons I cannot explain
    There's some part of me wants to see Graceland
    And I may be obliged to defend
    Every love, every ending
    Or maybe there's no obligations now
    Maybe I've a reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland

    Whoa, in Graceland, in Graceland
    In Graceland,
    I'm going to Graceland


    Lyrics (You Can Call Me Al):

    A man walks down the street
    He says, Why am I soft in the middle now?
    Why am I soft in the middle?
    The rest of my life is so hard
    I need a photo opportunity
    I want a shot at redemption
    Don't want to end up a cartoon
    In a cartoon graveyard
    Bonedigger, bonedigger
    Dogs in the moonlight
    Far away my well-lit door
    Mr. Beerbelly, Beerbelly
    Get these mutts away from me
    You know I don't find this stuff
    Amusing anymore

    If you'll be my bodyguard
    I can be your long-lost pal
    I can call you Betty
    And Betty, when you call me
    You can call me Al

    A man walks down the street
    He says, Why am I short of attention?
    Got a short little span of attention
    And, woe my nights are so long
    Where's my wife and family?
    What if I die here?
    Who'll be my role model
    Now that my role model is
    Gone gone?
    He ducked back down the alley
    With some roly-poly little bat-faced girl
    All along along
    There were incidents and accidents
    There were hints and allegations

    If you'll be my bodyguard
    I can be your long-lost pal
    I can call you Betty
    And Betty, when you call me
    You can call me Al
    Call me Al

    A man walks down the street
    It's a street in a strange world
    Maybe it's the third world
    Maybe it's his first time around
    He doesn't speak the language
    He holds no currency
    He is a foreign man
    He is surrounded by the sound, the sound
    Cattle in the marketplace
    Scatterlings and orphanages
    He looks around, around
    He sees angels in the architecture
    Spinning in infinity
    He says, Amen! and Hallelujah!

    Call me Al

    Na na na na...

    If you'll be my bodyguard
    I can be your long-lost pal
    I can call you Betty
    And Betty, when you call me
    You can call me Al
    Call me Al

    In a career dating back to the 1950s, Paul Simon established himself among the best and most popular songwriters of the rock era. Growing up in Queens, NY, Simon befriended schoolmate Art Garfunkel, who had an angelic tenor voice, and the two teamed up as Tom & Jerry, taking the names of the cartoon characters. In the winter of 1957-1958, they scored a chart hit with Hey Schoolgirl; both were 16 years old.

    Simon continued to try to score hits in the late '50s and early '60s, reaching the charts briefly in 1962 in the group Tico & the Triumphs with Motorcycle and under the name Jerry Landis in 1963 with The Lone Teen Ranger. He and Garfunkel teamed up again as a folk duo in Greenwich Village, signed to Columbia Records, and released Wednesday Morning, 3 AM (October 1964). The album flopped initially, but Simon, who had been spending a lot of time in England, was picked up as a solo artist by CBS and recorded The Paul Simon Songbook, released only in Great Britain in the spring of 1965.

    In the wake of the folk-rock trend prevalent that year, producer Tom Wilson took the acoustic track The Sound of Silence from the Wednesday Morning album, overdubbed electric guitar, bass, and drums and released the result as a single in October 1965, a full year after the album's release. It took off and hit number one, establishing Simon & Garfunkel.

    For the next five years, they were one of the most successful acts in pop music. Simon wrote the songs, and the two harmonized on a series of hit singles and albums. They split up in 1970, after the release of their most popular album, Bridge Over Troubled Water.

    Simon returned to solo work with Paul Simon (January 1972), which could not hope to match the success of Bridge, but which did sell a million copies and featured the reggae-tinged Top Ten single Mother and Child Reunion. There Goes Rhymin' Simon (May 1973) was another million-seller, containing the hits Kodachrome and Loves Me Like a Rock. After a 1974 live album, Simon released Still Crazy After All These Years (October 1975), which topped the charts, won the Grammy for Album of the Year, and included the number one hit 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.

    Simon took his time following this success, though he did release a greatest-hits album featuring a new hit, Slip Slidin' Away, and contributed to a remake of What a Wonderful World with Garfunkel and James Taylor. Moving to Warner Bros. Records, he wrote and starred in the film One Trick Pony (August 1980), the soundtrack of which contained the Top Ten hit Late in the Evening.

    Another three years passed before Simon returned with Hearts and Bones (October 1983), which did not match his usual level of commercial success. Simon experimented with songwriting styles and became interested in South African music, resulting in Graceland (August 1986), which became his biggest-selling solo album and won him another Album of the Year Grammy. Four years later, he delivered The Rhythm of the Saints (October 1990), which did for Brazilian music what Graceland had done for South African music and was another multi-platinum seller. Simon played a free concert in Central Park in August 1991 (ten years after Simon & Garfunkel had done one) and released a live album from the show. In 1993, Warner Bros. released a box set retrospective on Simon's career, and he undertook a tour that featured Garfunkel on their old hits, as well as covering other aspects of his career. He spent the next several years writing a stage musical, +The Capeman, and released his own version of its score as Songs from the Capeman (November 1997). The show, which starred Rubén Blades and Marc Anthony, opened on Broadway in early 1998 and was a quick failure. In 1999, Simon toured on a double bill with Bob Dylan. His next album, You're the One, was released in October 2000. It went gold and earned a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year. In 2006 Simon released Surprise, a collection of new material featuring three songs written with Brian Eno. ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

    Lyrics:
    If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream
    And for a fraction of a second you can't remember where you are
    Just open your window and follow your memory upstream
    To the meadow in the mountain where we counted every falling star

    I believe a light that shines on you will shine on you forever
    And though I can't guarantee there's nothing scary hiding under your bed
    I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
    And never leave 'til I leave you with a sweet dream in your head

    [Chorus:]
    I'm gonna watch you shine
    Gonna watch you grow
    Gonna paint a sign
    So you'll always know
    As long as one and one is two
    There could never be a father
    Who loved his daughter more than I love you

    Trust your intuition
    It's just like goin' fishin'
    You cast your line and hope you get a bite
    But you don't need to waste your time
    Worryin' about the market place
    Try to help the human race
    Struggling to survive its harshest night

    [Chorus 2x]

Founded and led by Joseph Shabalala in 1974, they quickly became hugely popular in their native South Africa but it was their collaboration with Paul Simon on his classic Graceland album in the mid-eighties that brought them to a worldwide audience.

    The group's stunning vocal harmonies combining a number of bass voices with a single tenor and alto and with Shabalala singing lead are instantly recognisable and extraordinarily powerful and their live shows are also a showcase for athletic Zulu dancing.

    Ladysmith Black Mambazo have played Montreux on three occasions and this DVD is a combination from all three performances. It features classic tracks such as Hello My Baby, King Of Kings and the song co-written with Paul Simon, Homeless, which has become their signature tune.

    As a bonus feature, these duplicate performances from other years are also included:
    1) Homeless 2) Nomathemba 3) Hello My Baby 4) Homeless
