We wear a yellow ribbon
We wear it near our heart
We wear it for our troops
While we are far apart.

It’s a symbol of our Love
It’s a symbol of our Pride
And we’ll wear a Yellow Ribbon
Until they’re back by our side.

So for all of our Armed Forces
Let Us, that’s Me and You,
Wear a Yellow Ribbon
For our heroes, Brave and True.
