Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
The missing lyrics from Martin Jonas' post are:

If I had a ribbon bow to tie my hair
This old world could come and go I wouldn't care
I'd stay up in my castle and I'd always wear
A ribbon bow so fine to tie my hair.

There's a story of a girl, a story seldom told
What she wanted from this world was not of gems or gold
Her wishes were quite plain as you will see
How often she would simply make this plea.

(And in all cases just 'tie my hair')

At least that's how I transcribed it from Maxine Sullivan's version which was written by Prince/Singer. I don't think it's in the public domain yet. But I could be wrong....
Hope this helps
