Song : E

Intro :
A Bb A
The French are glad to die for love,

A Bb A
They delight in fighting duels;

E F#m F#7
But I prefer a man who lives

Bm E9 A
And gives expensive jewels!

A
A kiss on the hand may be quite continental
Adim7 E7
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
Bm
A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental
Bm7 E7
On your humble flats, or help you at the automat!
A D
Men grow cold as girls grow old
A E9 E7
And we all lose our charms in the end
A Amaj7
But square-cut or pear-shaped
A7 Bm7
These rocks don't lose their shape
Bm6 E7 A
Diamonds are a girl's best friend

A E7 A
...Tiffanys ..Cartiers..
E7 A Am Caug
Black Stars Frost Gorham,
Aaug
Talk to me Harry Wilson tell me all about it

Adim7 E9 E7

A
There may come a time when a lass needs a lawyer
Adim7 E7
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
Bm
There may come a time when a hard-boiled employer
Bm7 E7
Thinks you're awful nice But get that ice or else no dice!
A D
He's your guy when stocks are high
A E9 E7
But beware when they start to descend
A Amaj7 A7 Bm7
It's then, that's when those louses go back to their spouses.
Bm6 E7 A
Diamonds are a girl's best friends

A Bb A7 Bb7 B7 Bb7
Bb
I've heard of affairs That are strictly platonic
Bbdim7 F7
But diamonds are a girl's best friend
Cm
And I think affairs That you must keep liaisonic
Cm7 F7
Are better bets If little pets get big baguettes
Bb Eb
Time rolls on And youth is gone
Bb F9 F7
And you can't straighten up when you bend

Bb Bbmaj7
But stiff back Or stiff knees
Bb7 Cm7
You stand straight at Tiffany's

Cm Ebm6 Dm G7
Diamonds! Diamonds! I don't mean rhinestones!
Cm F7 Bb
But diamonds are a girl's best friend

Bb7 F7 Bb7#9
