Take Back Your Mink

ADELAIDE:
He bought me the fur coat five winters ago
And the gown the following fall
Then the necklace, the bag, the hat and the shoes
That was late '48, I recall
Then last night in his apartment
He tried to remove them all
And I said as I ran down the hall

Take back your mink
Take back your pearls
What made you think
That I was one of those girls
Take back the gown
The shoes and the hat
I may be down
But I'm not flat as all that

I thought that each expensive gift you'd arranged
Was a token of your esteem
But when I think of what you want in exchange
It all seems a horrible dream
So take back your mink
To from whence it came
And tell 'em to holanderize it
For some other dame

ADELAIDE and the HOT BOX GIRLS:
Take back your mink
Take back your pearls
What made you think
That I was one of those girls
I'm screamin'
Take back the gown
Take back the hat
I may be down
But I'm not flat as all that

I thought that each expensive gift you'd arranged
Was a token of your esteem
But when I think of what you want in exchange
It all seems a horrible dream
Aaahhh!
Take back your mink
Those old worn-out pelts
And go shorten the sleeves
For somebody else!
