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"

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!

We did wear the ring around our neck. I wore my boyfriends ring around my neck . We all loved this song. I still do I am 69.

I was only 10 when this came out. I had it on a 45 rpm record and knew the words by heart, but the concept of a "ring around your neck" always bothered me. How does one get it over your head? :=\ It took some years to realize it meant on a chain!

It was at the time records were on 78 and 45 in 1958.

William Ruha

So supple, so full of authority, rebellion, pathos, passion, defiance; note and pitch perfect; Elvis Presley's voice was the spokesman for OUR generation - the post-War coming-of-age, Rebel-Without-A-Cause searchers of meaning, longing for love and hope in a new nuclear age where one misstep could spell extinction.  Presley was our voice, our soul, our mentor, or musical Moses, delivering us to a new Promised Land "where the strong are just, and the weak secure, and the peace preserved."

Man with No Name

Not just you, this was my childhood's music, and the first star I idolized, even though I was born around a decade later that Elvis died. You can thank my parents for it by playing it around the clock when I was a still a (small) child because they were of the Elvis generation (actually, they were more of the Beatles generation but we lived in the outskirts of Europe [to the west of the Iron Curtain - but still]).

This is where an artist sings his heart out..........
