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’ [ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/b/boomtown-rats/46527.html ] 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!
