"Button Up Your Overcoat" is performed by Rowlf and Jimmy Dean on the November 14, 1963 broadcast of The Jimmy Dean Show.

From the Broadway musical Follow Thru, the song includes general advice about taking care of one's self. However, Jimmy and Rowlf omitted some of the more dated lyrics, such as those about bootleg hooch.
