You can take the moon
Gather up the stars
And the robins that sing merrily
Put 'em in a box
Tie it with a ribbon
Throw 'em in the deep blue sea

You can take the flowers
Down in lovers lane
And that sentimental poetry
Put 'em in a box
Tie it with a ribbon
Throw 'em in the deep blue sea

Not for me, all that stuff
The dreams that ruin your sleep
Not for me, had enough
Love is one thing you can keep

You can take the plans
And the wedding bells
And whoever sings "Oh Promise Me"
Put 'em in a box
Tie it with a ribbon
Throw 'em in the deep blue sea
'Cause love and I we don't agree

[Bridge:]

Hansoms through the park
Kisses in the dark
All the promises made faithfully
Put 'em in a box
Tie it with a ribbon
Throw 'em in the deep blue sea

And you won't go wrong
If you take a song
Sung by Frankie Boy or Mr. C
Put 'em in a box
Tie it with a ribbon
Throw 'em in the deep blue sea

Not for me, all that stuff
Not for me, had enough

You know what to do
With good old "Tea for Two"
And the girl for you, the boy for me
Put 'em in a box
Tie it with a ribbon
Throw 'em in the deep blue sea
'Cause love and I we don't agree
