He's your guy
When stocks are high
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

from Marilyn Monroe – Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend Lyrics on Rap Genius


She’s saying the man she’s with is great to be with when there are good times but when his money gets tied up he becomes a louse and goes back to the wife he cheated on.
