Cracker Jack Ring

This song is by Pierce Pettis and appears on the album Great Big World (2004).

Diamond captures the light,
Holds it inside, like a genie in a genie lamp,
Look at it shine, it catches the eye and it flashes when you move your hand,
So show it to your friends,
Wave it 'round and then say, "Love is an expensive thing,"
Let everybody see you're worth it all to me,
That ain't no cracker jack ring.

I took you by surprise, baby, didn't I, when I got down on my knees?
In a public place, and every staring face - let 'em all stare at me,
When you really love a song you can hold out for so long, then you just cut loose and sing,
I'm singing just for you,
Baby, I'm your fool, and that ain't no cracker jack ring.

Twenty-four carats, you know, set in a band of fine, white gold.

I worked a whole year - toil, sweat and tears, and I sold my red Trans Am,
Baby, I don't mind - I'd do it anytime, just to put that ring on your hand,
It's just a little stone, and don't think I don't know you could do a lot better than me,
I'm such a lucky guy and, baby, that is why that ain't no cracker jack ring.

Don't think I don't know you could do a lot better than me,
I'm such a lucky guy - baby, that is why, well, that ain't no cracker jack ring.
