In het lied reageert de zanger op een andere man die zijn geliefde wil en zegt dat de zanger niet de juiste voor haar is. Ondanks de mooie kleren en diamanten die die ander voor haar kan kopen, zingt hij dat hij gelooft dat ze toch gelukkig met hem is en zonder die ringen, al maken die ander zijn avances hem boos.
