Lyrics

[Verse 1; "Wife" singing about "platinum blonde"]]

She?s a platinum blonde in a black Mercedes
Thinkin? she?s the envy of all the ladies
Droppin? her perfect children off at school.

In her leotard, she?s a real sensation
With a tummy tuck and implantations
Turnin? men?s heads and thinkin? she?s so cool.

[Verse 2: "Husband" singing about wife]

You?re my little brunette in a Chevy dual cab
Satisfied with the things we have
Drivin? our average kids to the football field.

You ain?t got a big diamond on your hand
But there?s no doubt that I?m your man
Your heart is good, and what?s under your hood is real.

[Chorus: Wife]

I just have to laugh when I see those people puttin? on airs
And honey I can guarantee, I?d never trade our lives for theirs

[Together]:

Love don?t come from faster cars
Or fancy clothes or fine cigars
Long as I have you I have enough
You?re my diamond in the rough

[Verse 3: "Husband" singing about "platinum man"]

He got a big gold Rolex on his wrist
Just got back from that safari trip
Drivin? his Escalade with jacked up wheels

Got a forty foot yacht and he?s so proud
Flippin his cell phone, talkin? so loud
?bout his multi-million dollar deals

[Verse 4: "Wife" singing about husband"]

In your old work boots and faded jeans
Stood by me since we were seventeen
I know I can always count on you.

I don?t need fluff and I don?t need hype
Give me the strong and steady type
To love me right and always to be true

[Chorus: Wife]

I just roll my eyes when I see those people puttin? on airs
And honey I can guarantee, I?d never trade our lives for theirs.

[Together]

Love don?t come from faster cars
Or fancy clothes or fine cigars
Long as I have you I have enough
You?re my diamond in the rough

Love don?t come from faster cars
Or fancy clothes or fine cigars
Long as I have you I have enough
You?re my diamond in the rough

You?re my diamond in the rough
