Diamond Smiles by The Boomtown Rats

Intro 2 bars of E

E 
Traffics wild tonight
                            A   
Diamond smiles her cocktail smile
                          B
Tonight she’s in heavy disguise
                                    E
She looks at her wrist to clock the passing time

E
Weathers mild tonight
                                 A
She wonders will they notice her eyes
                                B
She wonders will her glamour survive
                                    E
And can they see she’s going down a third time

E
Oh everybody tries
                        A
It’s Dale Carnegie gone wild
                       B
But Barbara Cartland’s child 
                       E
Long ago perfected the motionless glide

E
And in the low voltage noise
                             A
Diamond seems so sure and so poised
                                  B
She shimmers for the bright young boys
                                     E
And says ‘love is for others but for me it destroys’

The girl in the cake
Jumped out too soon by mistake
Somebody said the whole things half baked
And Diamond lifts her glass and says ‘Cheers’

She stands to one side
There’s no more to this than meets the eye
Everybody drinks Martini dry
And talks about clothes and the latest styles

Chorus
E                    A
Oh, oh they said she did it with grace
              B
They said she did it with style
              A
They said she did it all
            B                 
They said before she died
      A
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
B                    E
I remember Diamond’s smile

Nobody saw her go
They said they should have noticed ‘cause her dress was cut so low
Well it only goes to show
Ha, ha how many real men any of us know

She went up the stairs
Stood upon the vanity chair
Tied her lame belt around the chandelier
And went out kicking at the perfumed air

Chorus 
E                    A
Oh, oh they said she did it with grace
              B
They said she did it with style
              A
They said she did it all
            B                 
They said before she died
      A
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
B                    E
I remember Diamond’s smile
Na, na, na, na, na, na  
(This is repeated over and over again to a recurring 2 bar pattern of E, A, B and E)

This is my first go at this so please forgive any mistakes. I play this using
some palm muting. Its a brilliant little tune, from long ago. Enjoy!
