Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend
Original Lyric:


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 at the automat!

Men grow cold, as girls grow old
And they all lose their charms in the end
But square-cut or pear-shaped,
These rocks don't lose their shape.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend

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 hot boiled employer
Think 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
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 liasonic,
Are better bets
If little pets get big baggetes

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...
Best friend!

Material Girl
Original Lyric:


Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me
I think they're o.k.
If they don't give me proper credit
I just walk away

They can beg and they can plead
But they can't see the light, that's right
'Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right

CHORUS
'Cause we're living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Some boys romance, some boys slow dance
That's all right with me
If they can't raise my interest then I
Have to let them be

Some boys try and some boys lie, but
I don't let them play (no way)
Only boys that save their pennies
Make my rainy day

CHORUS

Boys may come and boys may go
And that's all right you see
Experience has made me rich
And now they're after me

CHORUS
'Cause everybody's . . .
