Wear My Ring Around Your Neck
Elvis Presley Lyrics


Won't you wear my ring around your neck
To tell the world I'm yours, by heck
Let them see your love for me
And let them see by the ring around your neck

Won't you wear my ring around your neck
To tell the world I'm yours, by heck
Let them know I love you so
And let them no by the ring around your neck
They say that goin' steady is not the proper thing
They say that we're too young to know the meaning of a ring
I only know that I love you and that you love me too
So, darling, please do what I ask of you

Won't you wear my ring around your neck
To tell the world I'm yours, by heck
Let them see your love for me
And let them see by the ring around your neck

Well they say that goin' steady is not the proper thing
They say that we're too young to know the meaning of a ring
I only know that I love you and that you love me too
So, darling, please do what I ask of you

Won't you wear my ring around your neck
To tell the world I'm yours, by heck
Let them know I love you so
And let them no by the ring around your neck

And let them know by the ring around your neck
And let them know by the ring around your neck

Lead singer of Deep Purple Ian Gillan said, "You know why Elvis will always be the king of rock and roll because he is the greatest singer that has ever lived"

Alan Wilson

@Sophie Halikiopoulos MEH, BITCH! NOW TAKE YO WEAK AGNEW STUFF OUTTA HERE!

Danny D

He is by far the most diverse and versatile singer in recorded history. From '53-'77

@Randy TenBrink I think what my dude means is he has a great voice, but not the best. So many different voices out there that claiming one of all is the best is a matter of opinion.

Scott Bailey

If Ian Gillian said that, it was true. Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple grew up to Elvis. Elvis was responsible for all the Hard Rock Bands of the late 60s and early 70s. Elvis set the trend. Elvis met the guys of Led Zeppelin and Elvis covered Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven". It's here on YouTube. Listen, you'll like it!

@Randy TenBrink Meh? what do you mean "meh"? You should do more research before you dis the king by saying "meh"!!!!!!

Diane Alhasan

Every song Elvis sang is beautiful! Long live the king! 😍😘

Terry McKown

Born in 57, my mom had this on a 45rpm and as a young child I wore this record out. I was still in elementary school the last time I heard it until about a year ago. I was surprised that I still remembered the loud drum fill in the last chorus right before  I heard it again along with the guitar lick at the end. This is one of the many reasons I love You Tube, so many songs I thought I'd never hear again. :)
