The French are glad to die for love They delight in fighting duels But I prefer a man who lives And gives expensive jewels A kiss on the hand may be quite continental But diamonds are a girl's best friend A kiss may be grand, but it won't pay the rental On your humble flat or help you at the automat Men grow cold as girls grow old And we all lose our charms in the end But square-cut or pear-shape These rocks don't lose their shape Diamonds are a girl's best friend Tiffanys........Cartiers Black Star.......Frost-Gorham Talk to me Harry Winston Tell me all about it There may come a time when a lass needs a lawyer But diamonds are a girl's best friend There may come a time when a hard boiled employer Thinks you're awful nice, but get that ice or else no dice He's your guy when stocks are high But beware when they start to descend It's then that those louses go back to their spouses Diamonds are a girl's best friend I've heard of affairs that are strictly platonic But diamonds are a girl's best friend And I think affairs that you must keep per-sonic Are better bets if little pets get big baguettes Time rolls on and youth is gone And you can't straighten up when you bend But stiff back or stiff knees You stand straight at Tiff-nees (Oooo-oooo) Diamonds (Diamonds) Diamonds (Diamonds) I don't mean rhinestones But diamonds are a girl's best, best friend ********** DIAMONDS ARE A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND (Juke Styne / Leo Robin) Performed by Jane Russell A kiss on the hand may be quite continental But diamonds are a girl's best friend A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental On your humble flat or help you at the automat Men grow cold as girls grow old And we all lose our charms in the end But square-cut or pear-shaped These rocks don't lose their shape Diamonds are a girl's best friend Tiffanys........Cartiers Black Star.......Frost-Gorham Talk to me Harry Winstone Talk to me Ya-Hoo! ********** TWO LITTLE GIRL'S FROM LITTLE ROCK / FINALE (Jule Styne / Leo Robin) Performed by Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe & CHORUS MARILYN: We're just two little girls from Little Rock JANE: And we lived on the wrong side of the tracks BOTH: But at last we won the big crusade Looks we we finally made the grade (But square-cut or pear-shape) (These rocks don't lose their shape) (Diamonds, diamonds) (Diamonds are a girl's) (Diamonds are a girl's best friend) ********** All songs transcribed/verified by Mel Priddle - August 2008)
