It's Raining Diamonds


I had a dream
I held a palm tree
In the palm of my hand
I'm on a coral sand beach
Where pelicans fly
I'm layin' in the cool breeze
Doing what I please

I had a dream
I held a palm tree
In the palm of my hand
I'm on a coral sand beach
Where pelicans fly
I'm layin' in the cool breeze
Doing what I please

La da da dee
It's raining diamonds
Over the seas
The seas of Saturn
In Neptune's skies
It's raining diamonds
In Jupiter's climes
Yeah raining diamonds
Over you and me

La da da dee
It's raining diamonds
Over the seas
The seas of Saturn
In Neptune's skies
It's raining diamonds
In Jupiter's climes
Raining diamonds
And over you and me

Green leaves, gold flowers, red sunset
Green leaves, gold flowers and a red sunset
Green leaves, gold flowers, red sunset
Green leaves, gold flowers, red sunset

Details:
Some scientists believe that on Jupiter and Saturn, it rains diamonds. Lightning storms turn methane into soot, which hardens into chunks of graphite and then diamond as it falls. These diamond 'hailstones' eventually melt into a liquid sea in the planets' hot cores. Uranus and Neptune have long been thought to harbour gemstones, but Saturn and Jupiter were previously not thought to have suitable atmospheres. The findings are yet to be peer reviewed.
