Save your heart for me


Save your heart for me

[instrumental with whistling]
Walk along the lake with someone new
Have yourself a summer fling or two
But remember I'm in love with you and
Save your heart for me

When the summer moon is on the rise
And you're dancin' under starlit skies
Please don't let stars get in your eyes, just
Save your heart for me

When you're all alone, far away from home
Someone's gonna flirt with you-ou
I won't think it's wrong if you play along
Just don't fall for someone new

When the autumn winds begin to blow
And the summertime is long ago
You'll be in my arms again I know, so
Save your heart for me
Darlin', save your heart for me

Brief instrumental with whistling-first two lines of a verse
Please remember I'm in love with you so
Save your heart for me
Darlin', save your heart for me



"Save Your Heart for Me" is most well known by a version recorded in 1965 by American pop group Gary Lewis & the Playboys and appears on the group's 1965 album A Session with Gary Lewis and the Playboys. Lewis and his band released their version as a single in June 1965, and it peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week of August 21, 1965.[2] It was kept from the top of the chart by Sonny and Cher's hit, "I Got You Babe."[3] However, it went to number one on the Billboard easy listening chart for three weeks in August 1965.[4] The song was covered by Livingston Taylor in 1993 on his album Good Friends."Save Your Heart for Me" is a song written by Gary Geld and Peter Udell. The song was originally written for and recorded by singer Brian Hyland in 1963. Although not released as a single in its own right, it was included as the B-side to Hyland's song, "I'm Afraid to Go Home," and later appeared on Hyland's 1994 greatest hits album.[1]

Lewis credited the success of the record to both producer Snuff Garrett and to the short length of the song. Since it was less than two minutes duration, Lewis has stated that "(I)t was played everywhere. Deejays loved it."[4]
