Perry Como - Scarlet Ribbons LyricsI peeked in to say goodnight,And then I heard my child in prayer:And for me some scarlet ribbons,Scarlet ribbons for my hair . . .All the stores were closed and shuttered,All the streets were dark and bare . . .In our town, no scarlet ribbons,Not one ribbon for her hair . . .Through the night my heart was aching,Just before the dawn was breaking,I peeked in and on her bed,In gay profusion lying there,Lovely ribbons, scarlet ribbons,Scarlet ribbons for her hair . . .If I live to be two hundred,I will never know from where,Came those lovely scarlet ribbons,Scarlet ribbons, for her hair!
