Hang out the streamers
Bring out the wine
Crack open the bottle
Cos baby, you're mine
There's bunting on the staircase
And ribbons in the hall
Some have a half-measure
But i've got it all

Let yours be the last face I see every night
Soft crows the rooster, the dawn clings so bright
When the stars are all staggering home in the light
You're the string baby, and I am the kite

Let yours be the only hand that I hold
To have me, to hold me, until I grow old
May our eyes be wide open and our hearts never cold
I'm the lost sheep and you are the fold

May I still read your face when my eyes lack their lustre
In a warm feather bed, in the cold winds that bluster
May the dust of sweet blessings rain on you tonight
I'm the string baby, and you are the kite
