TAKE BACK YOUR MINK Frank Loesser Julie London He bought me the fur mink five winters ago And the gown the following fall Then the necklace, the bag, the gloves, and the hat, That was late '48 I recall Then last night in his apartment He tried to remove them all And I said as I ran down the hall. Take back your mink Take back your pearls What made you think That I was one of those girls? Take back the gown The gloves and the hat I may be down But I'm not flat as all that. I thought that each expensive gift you'd arranged Was a token of your esteem But when I think of what you want in exchange It all seems a horrible dream Eek. So take back your mink. To from whence it came And tell them to alter and rise it For some other dame Take back your mink Take back your pearls What made you think That I was one of those girls? I'm screaming: Take back the gown The gloves and the hat I may be down But I'm not flat as all that. I thought that each expensive gift you'd arranged Was a token of your esteem But when I think of what you want in exchange It all seems a horrible dream Eek! Take back your mink Those old worn out pelts And go shorten the sleaves For somebody else. (interlude) Well, wouldn't you? (Contributed by Randall Leddy - April 2007)
