THE RING FELL UNDER THE SOFA (Barnett / Fain) Billy Cotton & His Band V. Alan Breeze and Chorus We would have been married for twenty two years But the ring fell under the sofa With her finger held high, I proposed with a sigh But then nervously I missed the mark We have our own house now all paid up in full But the ring fell under the sofa Id have found it no doubt, but the lights were all out And I cant get about in the dark A parlour search is now our game The chairs are like new, no ones sat in em (sat in em) But when were through its always the same No, no, no, no, no platinum I lost the deposit but what do I care Were the best of sweethearts today Yes the ring fell under the sofa But maybe its better that way That is the tale of a fellow Whod like to unburden his mind Never was romance so hampered By fate so severe and unkind His story has yet to end So pay strict attention, my friend I fully intended to make her my wife But the ring fell under the sofa Shed have stood by my side, such a beautiful bride While the clergyman tied up the knot (tied the knot) By now Id be hen-pecked and love might have died But the ring fell under the sofa And Im happy to say when I found it next day I just hid it away on the spot A parlour search is now our game The chairs are like new, no ones sat in em But when were through its always the same No, no, no, no, no platinum We might have been married for better or worse But Im still a bachelor gay For the ring fell under the sofa And I like it better, and I like it better, Yes I like it better that way.
