The Lyrics

I'm leavin' her, I done my time
Made out a list, what is and isn't mine
Received the lawyer's letter
Sayin' that I'll soon be free
And just so I don't forget
All that misery...

Tied a Yellow Ribbon
'Round my hunk a' wood
As a reminder,
Marriage ain't no good..
I keep that Yellow Ribbon
'Round my wee will-ee
So, each time I go
I see it and know
How bad wives can be..
I'll never take that Yellow Ribbon
Off my wee will-ee

So many years, did I waste
When it comes to women,
I really got bad taste
Now that I'm out of prison
No probation time for me..
This simple Yellow Ribbon's
All I'll need to keep me free..

Tied a Yellow Ribbon
'Round my hunk a' wood
As a reminder
Marriage ain't no good
I keep that Yellow Ribbon
'Round my wee will-ee
So, each time I go
I see it and know
How bad wives can be
I'll never take that Yellow Ribbon
Off my wee will-ee..

Now, each time I pee, I'm cheering
And I can't believe I see
Dozens of Yellow Ribbons
On guys in line with me...

I giggled the whole way through-- but one slightly inappropriate question: was the ribbon yellow when it was put there?
