Scarlet Ribbons (of Blood)

Tune: Scarlet Ribbons

 
Once upon a midnight dreary
Dressed in flannel underwear,
Had this dream she wanted ribbons,
Scarlet ribbons for her hair.

Where could I find scarlet ribbons
At a price I thought was fair?
Where else, but for sale on eBay:
Scarlet ribbons for her hair.

Light she was and like a fairy
And her shoes... (spoken) Excuse me! (sing) Where
Did I put those scarlet ribbons,
Scarlet ribbons for her hair?

So damn cheap, I bought a truckload -
Now I cry, in dark despair.
Buried her alive in ribbons,
Scarlet ribbons for her hair.

Scarlet ribbons, ribbons, ribbons,
So many they cut off her air,
Suffocated by those ribbons,
Scarlet ribbons for her hair.

If I live to be a hundred,
Maybe I'll escape the chair,
But here in jail I'll rot, and sing of
Scarlet ribbons for her hair.
