Button Up Your Overcoat Lyrics


by Ruth Etting. From Water for Elephants.


Words and music by DeSylva, Brown, and Henderson

Listen, big boy,
Now that Iíve got you made,
Goodness, but Iím afraid,
Somethingís going to happen to you;
Listen, big boy,
Youíve got me hooked, and how,
I would die if I should lose you now!

Button up your overcoat,
When the wind is free,
Take good care of yourself,
You belong to me!

Oh, eat an apple every day,
Get to bed by three,
Take good care of yourself,
You belong to me!

Be careful crossing streets, ooh-ooh,
Donít eat meats, ooh-ooh,
Cut out sweets, ooh-ooh,
Youíll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum!

Keep away from bootleg hooch
When youíre on a spree,
Take good care of yourself,
You belong to me!

Donít step on hornetís tails, ooh-ooh!
Or on nails, ooh-ooh!
Or third rails, ooh-ooh!
Youíll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum!

Oh, button up your overcoat,
When the wind is free,
Take good care of yourself,
You belong to me!

Oh, wear your flannel underwear,
When you climb a tree,
Take good care of yourself,
You belong to me!

Steer clear of frozen ponds, ooh-ooh,
Peroxide blondes, ooh-ooh,
Stocks and bonds, ooh-ooh,
Youíll get a pain, ruin your bankroll!

Keep the spoon out of your cup,
When youíre drinking tea,
Take good care of yourself,
You belong to me!
