Moulin Rouge – Sparkling Diamonds 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 girl's best friend
A kiss may be grand but it won't pay the rental
On your humble flat or help you feed your pussycat

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....... Cartier

'Cause we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Come and get me boys

Black Star! Rosh Cold!
Talk to me, harry zidler! 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

Diamonds are a girl's best
Diamonds are a girl's best
Diamonds are a girl's best

Let's make love
Everything's going so well...

'Cause that's when those lasses go back to their spouses
Diamonds, are a girl's best................... Friend.
