(Margaret Ann Rich)
I don't know how to tell her I didn't get that raise in pay today
And I know how much she wanted the dress in Baker's 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 gas its little ups and downs
Like ponies on a merry-go-round
And no one plants the grass green every time nut she don't mind
She wears a gold ring on her finger, and it's mine.
The new house plans we've had so long
I guess will gather dust nother 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 we'll have to wait
But you can bet that she'll 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 plants the grass green every time but she don't mind
She wears a gold ring on her finger and I'm so glad that it's mine.
She wears a gold ring on her finger and I'm so glad that it's mine...
