"Six Ribbons" as written by and Jonathan James English....
If I were a minstrel, I?d sing you six love songs,
To tell all the 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 these six ribbons, to tie back your hair

Yellow and brown, blue as the sky,
Red as my blood, blue as your eye

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 these six ribbons, to tie back your hair

If I were a minstrel, I?d sing you six love songs,
To tell all the world, of the love that we share
So be not afraid my love, you?re never alone love,
While you wear my ribbons, tyin? back your hair
Once I was a simple man, a poor common farmer,
I gave you six ribbons, to tie back your hair

Tooralee, tooralie, all I can share,
Is only six ribbons, to tie back your hair
Tooralee, tooralie, all I can share,
I gave you six ribbons, to tie back your hair

    General CommentThe name of the song, as most people know, is "Six Ribbons" but when it is stating the colour of the ribbons there are only five, Yellow, Brow ,Blue, Red and Green. Bit of a stuff up there.
    But the rest of the song is really good. It shows that you don't need an amazing gift just to show your love to someone.
