    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

    Lyrics
    Every time I see her she don't even look my way,
    Maybe she will notice me, but then what would I say?
    I would say what's on my mind,
    But the words are hard to find,
    But I'm gonna try to tell her anyway.
