Cue Sheet

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

Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend
 
 

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.
