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
And there he sits all alone on the sidewalk Hoping that you won't pass him by
 Should you stop, better not, much too busy
You'd better hurry, my how time does fly
And 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
 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
