VERSE:

Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors and then Chanel

Designers of her life, she loved and wore them well

But now because it’s all gone south, with our economy

She ponders what to buy, checks prices constantly

 

CHORUS:

She was a glamour girl throughout her world

Clothes and cars, a sight to see

But times have changed in oh so many ways

So now she’s traded in the life she knew

And lives a different style

She went From Diamonds and Furs, to Tools and Tires

 

VERSE:

To choose between her Lexus, or her black Mercedes Benz

Were choices she would make each day, her life was not pretend

She drives a Mitsubishi now, and doesn’t seem to mind

Knows that times have changed, some things were left behind

 

CHORUS:

She was a glamour girl throughout her world

Clothes and cars, a sight to see

But times have changed in oh so many ways

So now she’s traded in the life she knew

And lives a different style

She went From Diamonds and Furs, to Tools and Tires

 

BRIDGE:

Her luxuries are all replaced

She hunts for bargains, will not waste

She finally got beyond the tears

You’ll find her shopping now at Sears

 

CHORUS:

She was a glamour girl throughout her world

Clothes and cars, a sight to see

But times have changed in oh so many ways

So now she’s traded in the life she knew

And wears a different smile

She went from Diamonds and Furs, to Tools and Tires

Andrea and I went to get tires for our truck and while we were in Sears we were discussing how our lives had changed and she said:

“I went from diamonds and furs, to tools and tires”
