He'd joke about his borrowed time
he knew his course was run
took me aside before he died
looked in my eyes and said son

If you wanna be part of this business
be on time and don't drink too much
so I learned my stuff
ah the diamond so rough
and it's easy said I, said I

If you've got concrete offers
it's only a matter of time
til the Grammy award is on top of the telly
and the Platinum Rainbow is mine
and the Platinum Rainbow is mine

I came over here and I played in the streets
I played in the bars and under the sheets
I learned about life and how friends drift apart
I softened my head and I hardened my heart
I telephoned here and made good contacts there
I straightened my teeth and I coloured my hair
but wherever I went, I never got there
but it's easy said said I, said I

If you've got concrete offers
it's only a matter of time
til the Grammy award is on top of the telly
and the Platinum Rainbow is mine
and the Platinum Rainbow is mine

Well a couple of years went by like this
and I joined the ranks of the also ran
in the meantime got married, three kids and a wife
I paid my dues and we paid the price
the illusions all waved as they jumped out the window
my eyes were empty, my heart couldn't feel
but my feet kept marching behind the big deal
still it's easy said I, said I

If you've got concrete offers
it's only a matter of time
til the Grammy award is on top of the telly
and the Platinum Rainbow is mine
and the Platinum Rainbow is mine

So I'm chuckin' it in
I'll bear and I'll grin
and all of my efforts l'il throw in the bin
I'll go down to hell, ah, sure I might as well
'cos if I was in heaven I don't think I could tell
between phony and honest, the real and the fake
I'm brittle I'm fragile I'm going to break
but before I do, one more call I should make
for it's easy said I, said I

If you've got concrete offers
it's only a matter of time
til the Grammy award is on top of the telly
and the Platinum Rainbow is mine
and the Platinum Rainbow is mine
