Yellow Ribbon

Yellow Ribbon

 

Little Bob he still remembers that day

The day he held his daddy’s hand

He had tears in his eyes cos’ daddy’s going away

He’s off to another land

 

He had a smiling face as he said goodbye

As he waved his yellow band

He didn’t want his dad to see him cry ~ so

He pretended it was sand

  

Yellow ribbon round the Christmas tree

Bobby there all alone                       

Yellow ribbon round the Christmas tree

Daddy, please come home

 

Another year another Christmas tree

But the presents they’re all the same

You see it doesn’t matter what the presents will be ~ cos

His daddy ~ he never came

 

Bob won’t forget daddy leaving that day

And waving him goodbye

And when he goes to bed he starts to pray

That his Daddy never saw him cry

 

Yellow ribbon round the Christmas tree

Bobby there all alone

Yellow ribbon round the Christmas tree

Daddy please come home

 

Yellow ribbon round the Christmas tree

Reminds us where they are

Yellow ribbon round the Christmas tree

Holds daddy’s Silver Star
