  • 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 luster 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 luster on.

    Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
    Diamonds are forever, forever, forever.
    Forever and ever. Writer/s: John Barry, Don Black

  • Mark from Nantyffyllon South WalesCubby Broccoli hated the song he said the lyrics "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." & "Hold one up and then caress it,
    touch it, stroke it and undress it, I can see ev'ry part" were almost pornographic.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 17th 1971 the seventh James Bond movie, 'Diamonds Are Forever', was released in theaters across the U.S.A.
