"Diamonds Are Forever (Shirley Bassey cover)" as written by John Barry, Don Black and H D Brigadier Allfrey....
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

    General CommentDiamonds Are Forever is the soundtrack for the 7th James Bond film of the same name. This song was the second James Bond theme to be performed by Shirley Bassey, after Goldfinger in 1964. Arctic Monkeys covered this live at Glastonbury Festival in 2007, so I thought I'd put it up.
