"Ribbon On A Branch" as written by and Jack Segal Evelyn Danzig....
I peeked in to say goodnight
When I heard my child in prayer
And for me some scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for my hair

All the stores were closed and shuttered
All the streets were dark and bare
In our town, no scarlet ribbons
Not one ribbon for her hair

Through the night my heart was aching
And just before the dawn was breaking
I peeked in and on her bed
In gay profusion lying there
Lovely ribbons, scarlet ribbons
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

    General Comment"Feel the air under your feet
    (?)...all of me"

    "Feel the air under your feet
    there's a cool breeze over me"

    I'm about 99% sure those are the correct lyrics.
