Frank Sinatra - "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend" lyrics

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 girls best friend
A kiss may be grand but it wont 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 dont lose their shape
Diamonds are a girls best friend
TIFFANYS! CARTIER! Black Star, Rossgorm,
Talk to me Harry Winston - tell me all about it!

There may come a time when a lass need her lawyer
But diamonds are a girls 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
Its then that those louses go back to their spouses
Diamonds are a girls best friend

I've heard of affairs that are strictly platonic
But diamonds are a girls best friend
And I think affairs that you must keep blousonic are better bets
if little fets get big baguettes
Time rolls on and youth is gone and you cant straighten up when you bend
But stiff back or stiff knees you stand straight at Tiffanys
Diamonds...diamonds... I dont need rhinestones
But diamonds are a girls best...best friend
