Lyrics

by Jean Mishler




You can taste the strawberries that don't grow on my vine
You can pick pretty flowers in a garden that ain't mine
But when you come to dinner, you better be on time
and save the best of yourself for me.

You can drive other cars that aren't parked at my curb
You can leave for three days, and I won't say a word
But keep it to yourself, don't you tell that little bird
and save the best of yourself for me.

Save the best of yourself for holdin' me tight
Save the best of yourself for the dark rainy night
for when it starts to thunder, it always feels so right
and save the best of yourself for me.


Now, I have paid a price for wanting to stay free
But this is your cost if you want to be with me
Don't ever decline when invited for tea
and save the best of yourself for me.

Save the best of yourself for holdin' me tight
Save the best of yourself for the dark rainy night
for when it starts to thunder, it always feels so right
and save the best of yourself
save the best of yourself
save the best of yourself for me.
