I’m going with The Big O and this:

There are several versions, Ray Price, Elvis, Englebert Humperdinck and probably the best remembered Solomon King.
I remember an instrumental of it in the 1997 Sci-Fi Starship Troopers and it became one of the better pieces I could play.

She wears my ring to show the world that she belongs to me
She wears my ring to show the world she’s mine eternally
With loving care I placed it on her finger
To show my love for all the world to see
This tiny ring is a token of tender emotion
An endless pool of love that’s as deep as the ocean
She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That’s why I sing, because she wears my ring

She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That’s why I sing, because she wears my ring

This tiny ring is a token of tender emotion
An endless pool of love that’s as deep as the ocean
She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That’s why I sing, because she wears my ring
That’s why I sing, because she wears my ring

Written by Boudleaux and Felice Bryant.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Nice one Di. Sung by a man who is proud of the girl he loves and Roy Orbison could hit some notes.

  2. John Holton says:

    One of the few songs by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant that was not covered by the Everly Brothers. Great song!

  3. I haven’t heard that one in a long time Di. Great choice!! 🙂
