Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend   (Pioneer 6004)   Brian Hotchkies
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle to the left
A kiss on the hand might be quite continental, but
Diamonds are a girl's best friend

The men star right go once around the ring now
Left allemande and then grand right & left the ring
You're her guy, your stock is high
Dosado, she's your girl to the end
Promenade
Don't you linger, put a ring on her finger
Diamonds are a girl's best friend


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads square thru 4 hands
Meet that corner lady, touch 1/4
Then the ladies run, forward up to the middle & back,
Pass the ocean now
Swing thru you know, recycle there
Pass thru, allemande left again
Swing with this girl and promenade
*Square cut or pear shape
Those rocks don't lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*It's then that those louses go home with their spouses

*Her smile may be grand, but she's holding out her hand

*You're her guy, your stocks are high, but
