See pretty bangles shine
Silver green and blue
and if you haven't seen them
shine in the sun,
if you haven't heard them
Tinke, bell like ringing,
Then you've missed all the fun
Yeh (oh) Looking at one
They shine in the sun,
glow in the dark

And when the sun goes down
Pink and orange hues
Then I have rings and things
That glow in the dark,
Vivid memories that run free
And I sing songs of love
Yeh (oh) Love for a life,
That shines in the sun
Glows in the dark
