Lyrics:

Listen big boy

Now that ya got me made

Goodness but I'm afraid

Something's gonna happen to you

Listen big boy

You 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

Eat an apple everyday

Get to bed by three

Oh, take good care of yourself

You belong to me

Be careful crossing streets

Oooooh

Cut out sweets

Oooooh

Lay off meat, Ooh ooh

You'll get a pain and ruin your tum tum

Wear your flannel underwear when you climb a tree

Oh, take good care of yourself you belong to me

Button up your overcoat

When the wind is free

Oh, take good care of yourself you belong to me

Boop-Boop-a-Doop!

When you sass a traffic cop use diplomacy

Hmm, take good care of yourself you belong to me

Beware of frozen ponds

Oooooh

Stocks and bonds

Oooooh

Proxide blonds

Oooooh

You'll get a pain and ruin your bankroll

Keep the spoon out of your cup when your drinking tea

Oh, take good care of yourself

You belong to me

* Instrumental

Dont sit on hornets tails

Oooooh

Or on nails

Oooooh

Or third rails

Oooooh

You'll get a pain and ruin your tum tum

Keep away from bootleg hooch when you're on a spree

Oh, take good care of yourself

You belong to me

Button Up Your Overcoat

Oooooh!

When the wind is free

And take good care of yourself you belong to me

Boop-Oopy-Doop!

Oh!

Eat an apple everyday go to bed by three

And take good care of yourself you belong to me

Be careful

Crossing streets and cut out meat

Cut out sweets, you;ll get a pain and ruin your tum tum

Keep away from college boys when your on a spree

And take good care of yourself

You belong to me

Boop-Oopy-Doop Bop!
