"Scarlet Ribbons" as written by and Jack/levine Segal....
I peeked in to say goodnight and then I heard my child in prayer
Send for me some scarlet ribbons scarlet ribbons for my hair
All the stores were locked and shuttered all the streets were dark and bare
In our town no scarlet ribbons no scarlet ribbons 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 laying there
Scarlet ribbons scarlet ribbons pretty scarlet ribbons for her hair
If I live to be a hundred I will never know from where
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons scarlet ribbons for her hair
