Chunk Of Coal (Cash Johnny)

I'm just an old chunk of coal But I'm gonna be a diamond some day I'm gonna grow in glory 'Til I'm so blue pure perfect I'm gonna put a smile on everybody's face I'm gonna kneel and pray everyday Lest I should become vain along the way I'm just an old chunk of coal, now Lord But I'm gonna be a diamond some day I'm gonna learn the right words to talk I'm gonna search and find a better way to walk I'm gonna spit and polish my old rough-edged self Til I get rid of every single flaw I'm gonna be the World's best friend I'm gonna go around shaking everybody's hand I'm just an old chunk of coal, now, Lord But I'm gonna be a diamond some day
