SAVING UP FOR SALLY From the London Show "Zip Goes A Million" (1951) (Eric Maschwitz / Emile Littler / George Posford) George Formby (London Stage Production) - 1951 Gavin Lee - (London Theatre Museum Revival) - 2001 I may be rather careful A little slow to spend Don't often push the boat out And I haven't cash to lend It's not that I'm a meany Or spending comes amiss I'll tell you confidentially, folks The reason for it's this.... I'm saving up for Sally I'm saving for a rainy day I save what I can spare A penny here and there And just to keep us off the rocks I pop it in me moneybox Oh, I'm not a lad to dally Of Sally I'm as proud as I can be It's a lovely thing to be her beau But all the same I'd like to know If Sally's saving up a bit for me I 'aven't popped the question Or asked her to be mine But Sally's such a darlin' I'll have to toe the line It may be any minute, heh-eh I 'ope she'll say "I will" But till I pluck me courage up I'll keep on saving still 'Cause I'm saving up for Sally I'm saving for a honeymoon I've got to buy a ring A mattress with a spring There's one thing that I'll have to get A nice new shiny bassinet Oh, I'm not a lad to dally Of Sally I'm as proud as I can be But before I go to that expense I'd like to know in self defence If Sally's saving a up a bit for me (He's saving up for Sally) (Saving for a rainy day) (He saves what he can spare) (A penny here and there) (And just to keep them off the rocks) (He pops it in his moneybox) I'm not a lad to dally Of Sally I'm as proud as I can be It's a lovely thing to be her beau But all the same I'd like to know If Sally's saving up a bit for me (If Sally's saving up a bit for me) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2006) (Contributed by EUROPEAN OLDIES LYRICS - March 2006)
