Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend Lyrics

by T Bone Burnett

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 grown 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.
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 be 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.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend

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