"This Diamond Ring" as written by and Bob/kooper Brass....
Peak chart position # 1 in 1965
Who wants to bu-you-uy this diamond ri-i-i-ing?
She took it off her finger, now it doesn't mean a thi-i-i-ng
This diamond ring doesn't shine for me anymore
And this diamond ring doesn't mean what it meant before
So if you've got someone whose love is tru-you-ue
Let it shine for yo-ou-ou

This stone is genuine like love should be-e-e-e
And if your baby's truer than my baby was to me-e-e-e
This diamond ring can mean something beautiful
And this diamond ring can mean dreams that are coming true
And then your heart won't have to break like mine did
If there's love behind it

This diamond ring can mean something beautiful
And this diamond ring can mean dreams that are coming true
And then your heart won't have to break like mine did
If there's love behind it

This diamond ring doesn't shine for me anymore
And this diamond ring doesn't mean what it meant before

So if you've got someone whose love is tru-you-ue
Let it shine for yo-ou-ou

    General CommentI realized after all these years the enormity of the
    meaning in this song - he actually got the ring back
    from his former fiance!!! How 60's that is!!! Nowadays
    the girl's gonna keep it, saying that it was of course
    a gift of ultimate friendship - I have no idea what the
    protocall is for that type of situation
