Settle Down Lyrics:

I wanna settle down
I wanna settle down
Won't you settle down with me?
Settle down

We can settle at a table..
A table for two
Won't you wine and dine with me?
Settle down

I wanna raise a child
I wanna raise a child
Won't you raise a child with me...
Raise a child

We'll call her Nebraska
Nebraska Jones
She'll have your nose
Just so you know

I wanna settle down
I wanna settle down
Won't you settle down with me?
Settle down

Run from Angela Vickers
I saw her with you
Monday morning small talking on the avenue
She's got a fancy car
She wants to take you far
From the city lights and sounds deep into the dark

Star so light and star so bright
First star i see tonight!
Star so light and star so bright
Keep him by side!

I wanna settle down
I wanna settle down
Baby there's no need to run
I'll love you well
I wanna settle down
It's time to bring you down
On just one knee for now
Lets make our vows

Music video

A music video for "Settle Down" was first released onto YouTube on 6 July 2010 at a total length of four minutes and eight seconds.[1] The music video was chosen by United States iTunes as its "Music Video of the Week".[2]

The music video begins with the title of the song in black and white with a man narrating in the background. Kimbra is then shown wearing a little black dress on a stage with red curtains and behind her are porcelain dolls on shelves in rows. It then changes to a scene of a young girl that is seated at a dinner table singing with a male mannequin. Both are dressed in a '50s era style. Intercut with scenes of Kimbra, the young girl is in front of a mirror, brushing her hair with the mannequin feigning sleep in the background. After Kimbra, another young girl in a white dress and pearl necklace is seen outside on a picnic with the same mannequin, however, the first young girl sees the two of them together. At home, the first young girl begins to clean a home, prepare a meal, and dresses up for the mannequin, who at the end of all the hard work shes done, is absent. Kimbra is shown again, but the two girls are now with her, both dressed in white nightgowns. They dance as backup dancers or hype girls for Kimbra as the dolls on the shelves are set on fire. The video ends with a "The End" text.

"Plain Gold Ring"

The song "Plain Gold Ring" is a cover version. It was written by Earl Burroughs, and previously recorded by Nina Simone, and Nick Cave
