Ribbons [Song]

RIBBONS
By Marilyn Williams

When the winds get cold in December, your love's the flaming ember
That's a fire that keeps up together when those chilly breezes blow
As the nights get long and lonely, if you're not around to phone me
Just to say you love me only and you know I love you so.

Let's stay together through this Christmas and forever
Tie your ribbons of love all over me
Be my present on my tree, stay with me.

Tis not the cards or bells a-jingling or the shops where friends are mingling
It's your love that keep me tingling through those city's traffic jams
All the parang, all the singing, all the cheer that friends are bringing
Well it all adds up to nothing if you're not here in my arms.

Let's stay together through this Christmas and forever
Tie your ribbons of love all over me
Be my present on my tree, stay with me.

There is no Christmas without your love
There is no Christmas without your love.

See my eyes are flushed with feeling when I think that I'm believing
How your love just keeps me reeling through this Christmas and New Year
Let our love lights always glimmer, keep our love forever tender
And wrap me all December in the ribbons or your care.

Let's stay together through this Christmas and forever
Tie your ribbons of love all over me
Be my present on my tree, stay with me, stay with me
Won't you stay with me?
Baby, stay with me
Come and stay with me, stay with me.

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Marilyn Williams.

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
