Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend Lyrics

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend - Marilyn Monroe

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-shaped

These rocks don't lose their shape

 

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

 

Tiffany's Cartier

 

Black frost

 

Pearl 'bossed

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

 

Cos that's when those louses

Go back to their spouses

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

 

I've heard of affairs which are strictly Platonic

But diamonds are a girl's best friend

 

And I think affairs that you

Must keep Masonic

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 Tiffany's

 

Diamonds diamonds

 

Diamonds diamonds

 

I don't mean rhinestones

 

Diamonds

 

 

Are a girl's bestbest friend
