  • How many diamond rings does a girl need anyway? But of course, there's this timely argument:

    There may come a time

    When a lass needs a lawyer,

    There may come a time

    When a hard-boiled employer

    Thinks you're awful nice,

    But get that ice or else no dice.

    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.
