Diamonds are forever,
They are all I need to please me, they can stimulate and tease me,
They won't leave in the night, I've no fear that they might desert me.

Diamonds are forever, Hold one up and then caress it,
Touch it, stroke it and undress it, I can see every part,
Nothing hides in the heart to hurt me.

I don't need love, For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me, For when love's gone,
They'll lustre on.

Diamonds are forever, Sparkling round my little finger.
Unlike men, the diamonds linger.
Men are mere mortals who are not worth going to your grave for.

I don't need love, for what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me for when love's gone,
They'll lustre on.

Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
Forever and ever.

John Barry
Don Black
sung by Shirley Bassey
