1 Have you seen our badges new?
Pure white ribbons!
Don't you want to wear one too?
Pure white ribbons!
They are emblems of a band
That is working hand in hand,
And for temperance they stand,
Pure white ribbons!

Refrain:
Join the ringing chorus,
Wave them proudly o'er us,
Pure white ribbons, hurrah! hurrah!
Join the ringing chorus,
Wave them proudly o'er us,
Pure white ribbons, hurrah! hurrah!

2 They will drive strong drink away,
Pure white ribbons!
They will surely win the day,
Pure white ribbons!
They will right the wrongs we bear,
Drive out poverty and care,
So we're very proud to wear
Pure white ribbons! [Refrain]

3 They make stalwart men and strong,
Pure white ribbons!
And they help the world along,
Pure white ribbons!
They make sin and suff'ring,
They bring happiness and peace,
Make prosperity increase,
Pure white ribbons! [Refrain]
