Baubles, Bangles, and Beads
Music by Alexander Borodin
Words by Robert Wright and George Forrest

Baubles, bangles, hear how they
Jing, jinga-linga,
Baubles, bangles, bright shiny beads,
Sparkles, spangles, her heart will
Sing, singa-linga,
Wearing baubles, bangles, and beads.

She'll glitter and gleam so,
Make somebody dream so that
Someday, I may,
Buy her a ring, ringa-linga,
I've heard that's where it leads,
Wearing baubles, bangles, and beads.

She'll glitter and gleam so,
Make somebody dream so,
That someday, someday, I may,
Buy her a ring, ringa-linga,
I have heard that's where it leads,
Wearing baubles, bangles, and beads,
All those noisy bangles and beads.
