Lyrics [Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell] We're just two little girls from Little RockWe're just two little girls from Little Rock / We lived on the wrong side of the tracks / But the gentlemen friends who used to call / They never did seem to mind at all / They came to the wrong side of the tracksThey came to the wrong side of the tracks [Marilyn Monroe as LORELEI LEE] Then someone broke my heart in Little Rock / So I up and left the pieces there / Like a little lost lamb I roamed about / I came to New York and I found out [Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell] That men are the same way everywhere / I was young and determinedI was young and determined / To be wined and dined and ermined / And I worked at it all around the clock [Jane Russell as DOROTHY SHAW] Now one of these days in my fancy clothesNow one of these days in my fancy clothes / I'm goin' back home and punch the nose [Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell] Of the one who broke my heart [Marilyn Monroe] The one who broke my heart [Both] The one who broke my heart / In Little Rock [Marilyn Monroe] I learned an awful lot in Little Rock / And here's some advice I'd like to share / Find a gentleman who is shy or bold / Or short, or tall, or young, or old [Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell] As long as the guy's a millionaire / For a kid from a small street / I did very well on Wall Street / Though I never owned a share of stock / And now that I'm known in the biggest banks / I'm a-goin' back home and give my thanks / To the one who broke my heart [Marilyn Monroe] The one who broke my heart [Both] The one who broke my heart / In Little Rock

QUOTES ERNIE MALONE: You're the most attractive girl here, so I came over. DOROTHY SHAW: Flattery will get you anywhere. ERNIE MALONE: Then we haven't any problems... DOROTHY SHAW: You're not one of those? ERNIE MALONE: One of what? DOROTHY SHAW: The kind who tells a girl about his money.
LORELEI LEE: What's your line, Mr. Malone? ERNIE MALONE: My line? I tell a girl she has hair like a tortured midnight, lips like a red couch in an ivory palace, and I'm lonely. Then I generally burst into tears. Very seldom works. DOROTHY SHAW: You idiot.
