I'm Saving Up For Sally-1951
  HMV B10179 Posford/Maschwitz/Littler

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 meanie or spending comes amiss,
I'll tell you confidentially folks the reason for it is.

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 my money box.
Oh! I'm not the 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 haven't popped the question or asked her to be mine
But Sally's such a darling I'll have to draw the line
It may be any minute, I hope she'll say I will
But till I've plucked my 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 have to get, a nice new shiny bassinette.
Oh! I'm not the 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 up a bit for me.

I'm not the 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.
