This is a song written and performed by Paul Simon, from his album 'Graceland', released in 1986.

It is about a short relationship Paul Simon had with a diamond mine owner's daughter, while recording in South Africa. She was very rich and privileged, yet she acted very down to earth, like a poor girl.

It has backing vocals from the South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
