The world gets dizzy, spinning around Nice to find someone with their feet on the ground Some folks are too loose, others just split It's nice to find somebody that's a perfect fit So if you like my name feel free to try it on for size Free to cross my t's and free to dot both of my eyes With this ring, I do thee wed finally my heart can agree with my head and I'm your till death to us part finally my head can agree with my heart So if you like my name feel free to try it on for size free to cross my t's and free to dot both of my eyes
