Save it, pretty Mama,
Save it day by day;
Don't you dare give none away.
Oh, let it pile up, Mama,
And when you say,
I'll come around, dear.
Spend the day.
I've a brand of lovin'
Can't be beat;
My way of huggin'
Is sure a treat;
I know that we can agree,
So save it, pretty Mama,
Save it all for me!
