The Lyrics

ft. Timbaland. I'm sure this has happened before... Not to me... but to some other completely unrelated third party whom I have no knowledge of and... I'm just gonna stop now.
Intro: Oh, oh, no…
Oh, oh, no…

Verse 1: I’m in love with girl
Got me floating off the ground
And I’m hearin’ all she says
Can’t afford to propose now (huh…)
Was groc’ry shopping one day
A man sold me a ring he found
Oh yay!
I’ll tell my girl I’m sorry
Didn’t know I had been clowned
Today

Chorus: That it’s cubic zirconium
Not diamonds!
I said it’s cubic zirconium
Bad timin’! (uh)
No…

Verse 2: Give me another chance
Get a ring, go to Kay for you
I need a little cash for this ring
Sold kidneys too (ooooooh)
I promise it’s no plastic ring
But it’s up to you
And you say…
“Sorry, hon you got duped”
I don’t know what I can do
And I’m afraid!

Chorus: It’s cubic zirconium
Not cubic!
I said it’s cubic zirconium!
I ruined!
Whoa!!!!!!

[Instrumental Break]

Chorus: Hate cubic zirconium!
I hate it!
I said why make cubic zirconium
Don’t make it!

Chorus: I said I hate cubic zirconium!
Nooooooo!
I said just lose cubic zirconium!
Gooooooo!

Outro: I’m in love with you girl
Don’t let this ring get you down

(ABC) "If you like it, then you should a put a ring on it" but I guess the ring should be real huh? LOL! So funny, definitely a step up from your more recent stuff. The D-Mon is back!!!!!

Nice work! Now whenever I propose to my girlfriend, I'll make sure to not buy a ring from some random guy in a grocery store! haha, nice job!

(ABC) Good thing she said "sorry, hon" instead of just throwing your arse out. That'd really suck. A few of the lines were a bit weird and out-of-place to me, but otherwise this was a solid parody. 555

Could be worse. It could be one of those plastic rings from the machine in the grocery store.

This original is a personal favorite, it doesn't really easily lend itself to parody. Your idea was solid (no pun intended) and I love bringing Zirconium into a parody, but despite the title it was fairly predictable where it was going, still solidly written. . .and on the funny side.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
