JAMES BOND SONGS (1970's) DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER (1971) (Music: John Barry / Lyrics: Don Black) Performed by Shirley Bassey Diamonds are forever They are all I need to please me They can stimulate and tease me They won't leave in the night I've no fear that they might desert me Diamonds are forever Hold one up and then caress it Touch it, stroke it and undress it I can see every part Nothing hides in the heart to hurt me I don't need love For what good will love do me Diamonds never lie to me For when love's gone, they lustre on Diamonds are forever Sparkling round my little finger Unlike men, the diamonds linger Men are mere mortals who Are not worth going to your grave for I don't need love For what good will love do me Diamonds never lie to me For when love's gone, they lustre on Diamonds are forever, forever, forever Diamonds are forever, forever, forever Forever and ever!

Love is required whenever he's hired It comes just before the kill No one can catch him, no hit man can match him For his million dollar skill One golden shot means another poor victim Has come to a glittering end If you want to get rid of someone The man with the golden gun Will get it done He'll shoot anyone With his golden gun Alternate title song, not used..... THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN (Bruce / Smith / Buxton / Dunaway / Cooper) Performed by Alice Cooper The man with the golden gun Is waiting somewhere out there for you But you'll never see him He'll be lookin' for you Demand for the golden gun It's high priced, precise and true But you'll never see him He'll be lookin' for you The man with the golden gun in his pocket, oh-hoh-ah The man with the golden gun in his case But you'll never see him He'll be lookin' for you You better believe He'll be lookin' for you He's the man with the golden gun in his pocket The man with the golden gun in his case The man with the golden gun in his pocket The man with the golden gun in your face The man with the golden gun in his pocket The man with the golden gun in his case The man who gave you the golden gun Gun! *********************************** THE SPY WHO LOVED ME (1977) This film had an alternatively titled theme song..... NOBODY DOES IT BETTER (Marvin Hamlisch / Carole Bayer Sager) Performed by Carly Simon Nobody does it better Makes me feel sad for the rest Nobody does it half as good as you Baby, you're the best I wasn't lookin', but somehow you found me I tried to hide from your love light But like heaven above me, the spy who loved me Is keepin' all my secrets safe tonight And nobody does it better Though sometimes I wish someone could Nobody does it quite the way you do Why d'you have to be so good The way that you hold me, whenever you hold me There's some kind of magic inside you That keeps me from runnin', but just keep it comin' How d'you learn to do the things you do And nobody does it better Makes me feel sad for the rest Nobody does it half as good as you Baby, baby, baby, you're the best *********************************** MOONRAKER (1979) (Music: John Barry / Lyrics: Hal David) Performed by Shirley Bassey Where are you, why do you hide Where is that moonlight trail that leads to your side Just like the Moonraker goes in search of his dream of gold I search for love, for someone to have and hold I`ve seen your smile in a thousand dreams Felt your touch and it always seems You love me, you love me Where are you, when will we meet Take my unfinished life and make it complete Just like the Moonraker knows his dream will come true someday I know that you are only a kiss away I`ve seen your smile in a thousand dreams Felt your touch and it always seems You love me, you love me *********************************** All songs researched, transcribed and/or verified by Mel Priddle - June 2012) *********************************** (Contributed by Mel Priddle - June 2012)
