I don’t know how to tell her
That I didn’t get that raise in pay today
And I know how much she wanted the dress
In Bakers window, and it breaks my heart
To see her have to wait
And cancel all her plans she made to celebrate

But I can count on her to take it
With a smile and not a frown
She knows that life
Has its little ups and downs
Like Ponies on a merry-go-round
And no one grabs the brass ring every time
But she don’t mind

She wears a gold ring on her finger
And its mine

The new house plans we’ve had so long
I guess will gather dust another year
And the daffodils are blooming
that she planted way last fall
Upon the hill, and over by the gate
And Lord knows I hate to say again well have to wait

But you can bet that shell just take it
With a smile and not a frown
She knows that life has its little ups and downs
Like Ponies on a merry-go-round
And no one grabs the brass ring every time
But she don’t mind

She wears a gold ring on her finger
And I’m so glad that its mine

She wears a gold ring on her finger
And I’m so glad that its mine
