"Scarlet Ribbons" as written by and Jack/levine Segal....
You know I peeked in to say goodnight,
When I heard my child in prayer
She said, "And for me some scarlet ribbons,
Scarlet ribbons for my hair"

All the stores were closed and shuttered,
And 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, never know from where,
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons,
Scarlet Ribbons for her hair

Scarlet ribbons, there's magic in the air
Scarlet, scarlet ribbons for her hair
