Roy Orbison — Pretty Paper lyrics

Roy orbison

(the pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue)


Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Wrap your presents to your darling from you

Pretty pencils to write I love you

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue


Crowded street, busy feet, hustle by him

Downtown shoppers, christmas is nigh

There he sits all alone on the sidewalk

Hoping that you wont pass him by


Should you stop? better not, much too busy

Youre in a hurry, my how time does fly

In the distance the ringing of laughter

And in the midst of the laughter he cries


Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Wrap your presents to your darling from you

Pretty pencils to write I love you

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
