A somewhat dazed Diamond Lane, moments after accepting her crown and sash at the 2017 HTQ contest.

Third time's a charm! 2017 HTQ winner Diamond Lane charmed the Palm Springs convention audience and judges with her rendition of Ruth Wallis' The Dinghy Song. [1]

Sailing, sailing, over the ocean blue,
Davey's got a dinghy, so he paddles his own canoe.
He's got the cutest little dinghy in the navy
And all the girlies know that it's so.
The cutest little dinghy in the navy,
They love to watch him go "Heave ho!"
Just for a lark, he went and painted it green.
It's the only green dinghy that the girls have ever seen,
The cutest little dinghy in the navy. Heave ho! Heave ho!
Now, other sailors take their girls canoein'.
It's an old, old, navy technique,
But Davey gets more girlies with his dinghy,
And what is more, it never springs a leak.
Every time it rains, his little dingy gets wet,
But Davey says it's waterproof, so he doesn't fret.
The cutest little dinghy in the navy. Heave ho! Heave ho!
Now I have seen a hundred other dinghies,
And I'm qualified to remark,
He's got the cutest little dinghy in the navy.
Why, I would know it even in the dark.
It isn't very long and it isn't very short.
It's built for speedy action and it gets him into port,
The cutest little dinghy in the navy. Heave ho! Heave ho!
It isn't very narrow and it isn't very wide,
But you should see that thing go in and out with the tide.
The cutest little dinghy in the navy. Heave ho! Heave ho!
To keep it from the girls, Davey says, is very hard.
Why, it isn't even safe down at the Navy Yard,
The cutest little dinghy in the navy. Heave ho! Heave ho!
The Admiral has a flagship and the captain's got a cruiser;
But Davey's got a dinghy. It's a lollapalooza!
The cutest little dinghy in the navy, and the old Admiral is heard to say:
If he had Davey's dinghy he would always feel springy.
He'd ride the WAVES night and day.

The previous year, Diamond Lane had unsuccessfully attempted to win the HTQ crown a second time, with a racy roadside rest stop number (see video at right).

A performer of indeterminate gender, dubious talent, and questionable morals, Miss Lane is delighted to have been chosen as 2017's Honky Tonk Queen in Palm Springs. A girl's best friend and a boy's worst nightmare, she adds sparkle to her ditties (with a "d") mined from the deepest depths of the American Songbook, with or without her backup entourage, the Rest Stop Romeos. As a High Occupancy Lane (two or more passengers, please) she hopes to be the Express Lane to Your Heart at the Seattle Convention in 2018.

Diamond Lane's social secretary is rumored to be Ed Wilson of the El Camino Reelers.
