Shel Silverstein – Don't Give A Dose To The One You Love Most lyrics

Yes my dear I must admit that one time I might did
(And if you grow wiser for me experience)
Yes my dear I grew wiser in many ways and the thing I learned most
Is don't give a dose to the one you love most

No don't give a dose to the one you love most
Give her some marmelade give her some toast
You can give her the willings or give her the blues
But the dose that you give her will get back to you
I once had a lady as sweet as a song she was my darlin' and she was my dear
But she had a dose and she passed it along
Now she's gone but the dose is still here
So don't give a dose to the one you love most
Giver her some marmelade give her some toast
You can give her a partridge up in a pear tree
But the dose that you give her might get back to me

If you've got an itchin' if you've got a drip don't sit there wishin' for it to go way
Cause it won't if there's a thing on the tip of your thing or your lip
Run down to the clinic today and say
I won't give a dose
