Give me a dollar, You start to drink
play the music, children start to sing
look at me, without a blink
like the diamond on my wedding ring

Larger than a boulder, smaller than a pingpong
the force with this one is very strong
you might wonder if you are wrong
did I mention the alphabet song?

I think you are:

A star

Give me a dollar, You start to drink

Not sure about this line but after the hint in the comments, Google search for dollar drinks Canada gives results for $1 any size drinks at McDonald's, specifically mentioning Canada. Link to my "star" theory: Canadian flag features a maple leaf, which has the shape of a star. EDIT: Starbucks! Alex revealed it in the comments, I missed this clue.

play the music, children start to sing

Popular Children's song "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star". Every kid will start singing it when they hear the music.

look at me, without a blink like the diamond on my wedding ring

"Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky"

Larger than a boulder, smaller than a pingpong

MUCH larger than a boulder, but to us it looks smaller than a pingpong.

the force with this one is very strong

The gravitational pull or "force" of the star. (EDIT: And a reference to star wars, which I thought was just part of the clue, not part of the answer)

you might wonder if you are wrong

"how I wonder what you are"

did I mention the alphabet song?

The "alphabet song" has the same tune as "twinkle twinkle little star".

  • $\begingroup$ Also on the second last line, there's another reference $\endgroup$ – Alex Mar 27 '15 at 19:14
  • $\begingroup$ @Alex So is this the right answer? $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Mar 27 '15 at 22:50
  • $\begingroup$ @randal'thor this is the right answer indeed, but with line 1 still not what I am looking for. I guess I will accept it as an answer and explain in my next comment $\endgroup$ – Alex Mar 30 '15 at 15:02
  • $\begingroup$ Line1: Starbuck Line4 is also a reference from Starwar $\endgroup$ – Alex Mar 30 '15 at 15:03

You're a:

Jukebox

Because

One dollar is usually enough to start playing the music. The ring might be a reference to vinyls. The jukebox is larger than a boulder and smaller than a ping pong table!

  • $\begingroup$ That was quick. I was thinking along the lines of a karaoke machine. $\endgroup$ – kanchirk Mar 27 '15 at 17:58
