Best Friend

‘Best friend’ (Diamond cuts)

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 automatMen 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 loose their shape
Diamonds are a girl’s best friendTiffany’s

Talk to me Harry Winston
Tell me all about itThere 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 diceHe’s your guy 
When stocks are high
But beware when they start to descendIt’s then that those louses
Go back to their spouses
Diamonds are a girl’s best friendI’ve heard of affairs
That are strictly platonic
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend
And I think affairs 
That you must keep liaisonic
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’sDiamonds
Diamonds
I don’t mean rhinestones
But diamonds are a girl’s best 
Best friend
