Button up Your Overcoat
by Frank Sinatra



Listen, big boy
Now that you got me made
Goodness, but I'm afraid
Somethin's gonna happen to you!
Listen, big boy
You gotta be 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 every day
Get to bed by three
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me!
Be careful crossing streets, ooh-ooh
Cut out sweets, ooh-ooh
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
Just take good care of yourself
You belong to me!
Beware of frozen funds, ooh-ooh
Stocks and bonds, ooh-ooh
Dockside thugs, ooh-ooh
You'll get a pain and ruin your bankroll!
Keep the spoon out of your cup
When you're drinking tea
Oh, take good care of yourself
You belong to me!
Don't sit on hornet's tails, ooh-ooh!
Or on nails, ooh-ooh!
Or third rails, ooh-ooh!
You'll get a pain and ruin your tum-tum!
Keep away from bootleg hooch
When you're on a spree
You belong to me!
