'Round her neck she wore a yellow ribbon,
She wore it in the springtime and in the month of May.
And if you asked her why the heck she wore it,
She wore it for her lover who was far, far away.
Far away, Far away.
She wore it for her lover far away.
Far away, Far away.
She wore it for her lover who was far, far away.
