Words by Chas. Edwards. Music by Geo. C. Edwards.

A maiden fair with millions, there, a young man gay and bright,
Thought that he would propose to her one lovely summer's night:
He asked her hand in a manner grand, she said, "Give me time to think."
And when he called, again on her he got the "Rinkey Dink."

Oh, he got the "Rinkey Dink," yes, quicker than a wink;
he was building castles in the air, and all day long in a glass would stare.
Oh, he got the "Rinkey Dink," and he didn't have time to think:
It's a good thing, Paul, so push it along, or you'll get the "Rinkey Dink."

A young man who was homeward bound one lovely day in May,
And chanced to look, a pocket book, how nicely it did lay,
So large and fat, he looked at that, to pick it up did think:
Oh, he felt glad, he heaved a sigh, but got the "Rinkey Dink." - Chorus.

For a fine wife that was advertised an old man called one day,
And young, so fair with golden hair, to ask for Lilly Fay:
He knocked at the door on the top floor, and to himself did wink:
Instead of young she was forty-one-he got the "Rinkey Dink." - Chorus.

I met a man with ring in hand, and to me he did say:
"I found this ring, it's a grand thing; buy it, and you'll look gay."
I bought the ring like a silly thing, and didn't even think:
Oh, what a crash, the ring was brass- I got the "Rinkey Dink." -Chorus
