Simon Diamond sold his soul Changed his name by deed poll Started out as Simon Russell Lived his life inside a nutshell Oooh ooooh Oooooooh Ooooooh He couldn't take the public scorn Changed from human to plant form Now he swapped his legs for roots His arms and soil are in cahoots Oooh ooooh Oooooooh Ooooooh What will become of Simon Diamond Water himself Can't change the climat What will become of Simon Diamond Water himself Can't change the climat Oooh ooooh Oooooooh Ooooooh That'll do (That'll do) (16x) Oooh Oooh

Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
