The song tells a miraculous tale: a father hears his little girl pray before she goes to bed for “scarlet ribbons for her hair”. It is late, no stores are open in their town, nor is there anywhere the father can obtain the ribbons so he is distraught throughout the night. At dawn he again peeps in and is amazed to see beautiful “scarlet ribbons” in “gay profusion lying there.” He says that if he lives to be a hundred, he will never know from where the ribbons came from.

Written by Jack Segal in 1949.

I peeked in to say good night
When I heard my child in prayer
And for me, some scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for my hair

All the stores were closed and shuttered
All the streets were dark and bare
In our town, no scarlet ribbons
Not one ribbon for her hair

Through the night my heart was aching
Just before the dawn was breaking
I peeked in and on her bed
In gay profusion lying there

Lovely ribbons, scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair

If I live to be a hundred
I will never know from where
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair

Psalms 37:4¬†Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Isn’t it wonderful how our wonderful Father wants to give us all we desire such as the father in this song does for his little girl?
