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
Don't eat meat
Cut out sweets
You'll get a pain and ruin your

Keep away from bootleg hooch
When you're on a spree
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 hornet's tail
Or on nails
Or third rails
You'll get a pain and ruin your

Your creator has a master plan
Peace and happiness for every man
Your creator has a working plan
Peace and happiness for every man and woman
Every man and woman

Forgive yourself and those you love
Let your heart be free
Take good care of yourself
You belong to me

Love yourself from inside out
Unconditionally
Take good care of yourself
You belong to me
You belong to me

Don't ever compromise
Just realize
Love will guide you
