A Diamond’s Best Friend

Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend – music challenge

Nothing like a late entry in the challenge.

A Diamond’s Best Friend

Such a sassy lady
Rubenesque and flirty,
you turned heads,
some minds even dirty,
you bedded stars
and married a few
fame and fortune came to you,
and though it ended sadly
as you left us for another world,
you, Marilyn, Norma, you
are a diamond’s best friend,
they really look good on you.
