Lyrics

Button up your overcoat when the wind is free
Take good care of yourself, you belong to me!
Eat an apple every day, get to bed by three
Take good care of yourself, you belong to me!

Be careful crossing streets, oo-oo
Don't eat meats, oo-oo
Cut out sweets, oo-oo
You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum
Keep away from bootleg hootch when you're on a spree
Take good care of yourself, you belong to me!

Button up your overcoat when the wind is free
Take good care of yourself, you belong to me!
Wear your flannel underwear when you climb a tree
Take good care of yourself, you belong to me!

Don't sit on hornets' trails, oo-oo
Or on nails, oo-oo
Or third rails, oo-oo
You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum
Don't go out with college boys when you're on a spree
Take good care of yourself, you belong to me!
