"Tie a Yellow Ribbon" as written by Lawrence Russell Brown and Irwin Levine....
I'm comin' home, I've done my time
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine
If you received my letter telling you I'd soon be free
Then you'll know just what to do
If you still want me
If you still want me
Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon around the old oak tree
It's been three long years
Do you still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon around the old oak tree
I'll stay on the bus
Forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon around the old oak tree

Bus driver, please look for me
Because I couldn't bear to see what I might see
I'm really still in prison
And my love, she holds the key
A simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free
I wrote and told her please

Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon around the old oak tree
It's been three long years
Do ya still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon around the old oak tree
I'll stay on the bus
Forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon around the old oak tree

Now the whole damned bus is cheerin'
And I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons around the old oak tree
