"Ribbons Down My Back" is a song featured in the 1969 film Hello, Dolly! sung by Marianne McAndrew as Irene Molloy.


I'll be wearing ribbons down my back this summer
Blue and green and streaming in the yellow sky
So if someone special comes my way this summer
He might notice me passing by
And so I'll try to make it easier to find me
In the stillness of July
Because the breeze might stir a rainbow up behind me
This might happen to catch the gentleman's eye
And he might smile and take me by the hand this summer
Making me recall how lovely love can be
And so I will proudly wear ribbons down my back
Shining in my hair that he might notice me
