Ribbons and Roses

< instrumental opening  > 
 
Ribbons and roses,
pressed in an album of blue . . .
I found them tied in a lover's knot,
proving to me they never forgot . . .

Ribbons are fading,
the roses are falling apart . . .
And I wonder whether,
we'll always be tied together . . .
like those ribbons and roses sweetheart?

< instrumental break  > 

Ribbons are fading,
the roses are falling apart . . .
And I wonder whether,
we'll always be tied together . . .
like those ribbons and roses sweetheart?
