Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend Lyrics

(Leo Robin/Jule Styne)

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
We all lose our charm in the end
But square cut or pear shape
These rocks don't lose their shape

Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Yeah diamonds are a girl's best friend
Let's rock

There may come a time when a lass needs a lawyer
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
There may come a time when a hardboiled 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 spouses
And diamonds are a girl's best friend

Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Yeah diamonds are a girl's best friend
Let's rock again

Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
