The Fortunes - This golden ring
Tekst en muziek: Roger Frederick Cook en Roger Greenaway
(1966)






This golden ring’s gonna buy me a place in my baby’s arms
This golden ring’s gonna make quite sure that we never part
It’s so funny what a ring can do
Makes a girl just like you
Take the ride downtown
Searching for a wedding gown



So, I’ve got a ring for my baby
And I’m a thinking very soon that maybe
That girl will be mine
I’m gonna have an angel devine
And everything is gonna be fine
So fine



This golden ring is all I have to give to you
But given time and love, I’ll make your dreams come true



I’ve been saving all my money
I’ve been working hard, girl
Only with you in mind
But we’ve got something more than money
We’ve got a love that’s gonna last us



It’s so funny what a ring can do
Makes a girl just like you
Take the ride downtown
Searching for a wedding gown



So, I’ve got a ring for my baby
And I’m thinking very soon that maybe
That girl will be mine
I’m gonna have an angel devine
And everything is gonna be fine
So fine
Fine
