SAVE A LITTLE ONE FOR ME
 
div
 
I came out of the house today
Missis Benson across the way
Was making some tarts for her family
So I called out to Missis B

Chorus: 'Save a little one, save a little one
Save a little one for me'
When those lovely tarts I spied
'I'm so fond of them' I cried
'I like big tarts with jam inside
Save a little one for me-e-e-e
Save a little one for me'


Last Christmas morn at a church close by
A score of couples were there, Oh my
The parson shouted to them 'Your wed!'
So I threw some rice at them and said

Chorus: 'Save a little one, save a little one
Save a little one for me!
If she's dark or brown or fair
If she's bandy, I don't care
Or if you've one with ginger hair
Save a little one for me-e-e-e
Save a little one for me'


Now down our street old Doctor Cragg
Has been so busy with his black bag
He brought two more kids along today
I said, 'Don't give 'em all away'

Chorus: 'Save a little one, save a little one
Save a little one for me!
You were here this afternoon
You left two with Missis Moon
And as I'm getting married soon
Save a little one for me-e-e-e
Save a little one for me'


Last year I stayed beside the sea
Two hundred girls from a factory
They went in the sea, and I confess
I said, as each one took off a bathing dress

Chorus: 'Save a little one, save a little one
Save a little one for me!
I'm not going out too far
Don't think I'm particular
I don't care how small they are
Save a little one for me-e-e-e
Save a little one for me'


A girl at a church bazaar sublime
Was selling kisses at a bob a time
The way she kissed gave me the 'spur'
So I went to the stall and said to her

Chorus: 'Save a little one, save a little one
Save a little one for me!
Let me have a kiss I pray
Before they bite your face away
And I'll pay you next Saturday
Save a little one for me-e-e-e
Save a little one for me'


While I was passing an ice-cream shop
Some fellows inside there made me stop
The girl who served had the raspberry-stick
And I screamed as she gave them all a lick

Chorus: 'Save a little one, save a little one
Save a little one for me!
You're giving Harry, Tom and Dick
All of them a lovely lick
And I'd like a lick at the raspberry-stick
Save a little one for me-e-e-e
Save a little one for me'
