Green Carnation – Six Ribbons lyrics

If I were a minstrel
I'd sing you six love songs
To tell the whole world of
The love that we share.

If I were a merchant
I'd bring you six diamonds
With six blood red roses
For my love to wear.

But I am a simple man
A poor common farmer
So take my six ribbons
To tie back your hair.

(Yellow and brown
Blue as the sky
Red as my blood
Green as your eyes)

If I were a nobleman
I'd bring you six carriages
With six snow white horses
To take you anywhere.

If I were the emperor
(Yellow and brown)
I'd build you six palaces
(Blue as the sky)
With six hundred servants
(Red as my blood)
For comforting fare.
(Green as your eyes)

But I am a simple man
A poor common farmer
So take my six ribbons
To tie back your hair.

* * * * *

If I were a minstrel
I'd sing you six love songs
To tell the whole world of
The love that we share.

So be not afraid my love
You're never alone love
While you wear my ribbons
To tie back your hair.

Once I was a simple man
A poor common farmer
I gave you six ribbons
To tie back your hair.

Turelli, turella,
All I could share...
Is only six ribbons
To tie back your hair.

(Turelli, turella,
All I could share...)
I gave you six ribbons
To tie back your hair.
