Vance/Pokriss

Ruby red. Ruby red.

Chorus:
Ruby red were her lips. Diamond pure was her heart. Emerald green (emerald green) were her eyes.
A priceless gem of perfection, but I lost her 'neath the sapphire sky. Ruby red, ruby red, ruby red.

I'd cross the wide Pacific and swim the China sea to have those lips of ruby red back here again with me.
Ruby red, ruby red, to have those lips of ruby red back here, again, with me.

(Chorus)

I thought I could forget, so I sailed away, but I lived to regret until this very day.
Ruby red, ruby red, to have those lips of ruby red back here, again, with me.

(Chorus)

Ruby red. Ruby red.
