Chris Isaak – Pretty Paper lyrics

(Written By: Willie Nelson)

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write "I love you"

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Crowded street, busy feet hustle by him

Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh

He's just hoping he won't pass him by
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk

Should I stop? Better not, much too busy

I'm in a hurry, my how time does fly

And in the distance the ringing of laughter

And in the midst of the laughter he cries

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write "I love you"
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
