#SLS 4/12/20 – Diamonds Are Forever

This week Jim has prompted us with Diamond/Emerald/Jade/Pearl/Ruby/Sapphire for #SLS.  This week I have chosen Diamonds Are Forever,  sung by the incomparable Shirley Bassey. Here she is singing live in Berlin in 1987. This song was included in he soundtrack for the James Bond movie of the same title.

Lyrics
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 ev’ry 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
