Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies will star 3/4 round the ring now
Catch 'em left and roll promenade
1 and 3 wheel around, pass thru, u-turn back and
1/2 square thru, then a right & left grand you do
You're her guy, your stock is high
Dosado
She's your girl 'til the end
Take her home and don't you linger
Place a ring on her finger
Diamonds are a girl's best friend


FIGURE   

The heads (sides) pass thru, both turn left and go round one
Come thru the sides then right hand star
Corner left, don't be slow, partner right around you go
Corner left, left hand swing,
ladies chain across the ring
Turn and whirlaway, dosado the right hand girl
Your corner swing and whirl, promenade
*If you cater to her whims you'll end up buying gems
Diamonds are a girl's best friend


ALTERNATE LYRICS

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

*Square cut or pear shape, those rocks don't lose their shape

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

Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend Lyrics ID: 743

The French were bred 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
We all lose our charm in the end
But square cut or pear shape
These rocks don't lose their shape

...Tiffany's ... Cartier...
Talk to me, Harry, Winston, tell me all about it!

Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Yeah diamonds are a girl's best friend
Let's rock

There may come a time when a lass needs a lawyer
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
There may come a time when a hardboiled 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
It's then that those louses go back to their spouses
And diamonds are a girl's best friend

I'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 baggettes.

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...
- I don't mean rhinestones -
but Diamonds, Are A Girl's Best Friends

Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Yeah diamonds are a girl's best friend
Let's rock again

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

Composed by Jule Styne.
Lyrics by Leo Robin.
Recorded by Carol Channing.
