lyrics

Engagement Ring (J Olav van der Spree)

Please Miss, can you run this note
In tomorrow's Classifieds
Maybe there is guys out there
With better luck than mine
The inscription says "Forever"
This my name, that is hers
It's only been out the box the once
I'll take half of what it's worth
One former careful owner
A rock and everything
I'm taking out an ad to sell
A slightly used Engagement Ring

Excuse me, miss. I'm choking up
I'll try and compose myself
See, it wasn't her at all
Can't rightly blame it on no one else
You think it might be easier
If I handed you this note?
Seems there's something in my eye
And I can't make out what I wrote
I brought a picture with me
How much to put that in?
I'm taking out an ad to sell
A slightly used Engagement Ring

Can you print I know I been a fool
This breakup's all my fault
The sidesteppin' and the midnight drinkin'
Is a sure way to break a heart
I know it's nobody's business mam
And it sure ain't your concern
See, I'd like to have it in print by tomorrow
Even at eighty cents a word
I never meant to hurt her
Lord knows that I did
I'm taking out an ad to sell
A slightly used Engagement Ring
