Ribbons of blue
Remind me of you
Ribbons of red
Are the way that my heart bled
Memories so clear
Are still ringing in my ears
So I wanna send to you
My Ol' ribbons of blue

Ribbons of blue
Now remind me of you
Ribbons of red
Are the way that my heart bled
Memories so clear
Are still ringing in my ear
So I wanna send to you
My Ol' ribbons of blue

Got me a ribbon
Bright blue ribbon for my hair
Made me a promise
Now I know he didn't care
Touched by his first kiss
Fooled by his first song
The way he led me along
With my ribbons undone

Ribbons of blue
Now remind me of you
Ribbons of red
Are the way that my heart bled
Memories so clear
Are still ringing in my ear

(At this point, the song is over on the LP/CD Oceans Of Fantasy...)

So I wanna send to you
My Ol' ribbons of blue

Sad for me baby
So bad for me baby Oohh
Hard on me baby
So far from me baby Oohh

Ribbons of blue
Now remind me of you
Ribbons of red
Are the way that my heart bled
Memories so clear
Are still ringing in my ears
So I wanna send to you
My Ol' ribbons of blue

Blue Ribbon Dreamer
Came with words that sounded right
Took me dancing
Held me close and
Held me tight
Fooled by his first kiss
Touched by his first song
The way he led me along
With my ribbons undone

Ribbons of blue
Now remind me of you
Ribbons of red
Are the way that my heart bled
Memories so clear
Are still ringing in my ears
So I wanna send to you
My Ol' ribbons of
