IF YOU TALK IN YOUR SLEEP, DON'T MENTION MY NAME (Music: Nat D. Ayer / Lyrics: A. Seymour Brown) Billy Murray - 1911 A young married lady who was very much inclined To be just a little indiscreet Once met a fellow, they were never introduced Just met as lots of other people meet They both were having luncheon in a private dining room The meal was great and everything was grand When suddenly he saw a wedding ring upon her finger As he held her dainty little hand The door was closed, no one could hear So he leaned on the table and he said, "My Dear, I can see that you are married And you know I'm married too And nobody knows that you know me And nobody knows that I know you And if you care to, we'll have luncheon Every day here, just the same But sweetheart, if you talk in your sleep Don't mention my name" The young married lady didn't mean a bit of harm But she did go to luncheon every day She used to think it funny and if hubby ever knew She often used to wonder what he'd say One night she was awakened by a most familiar voice The voice was right beside, it would seem For a minute she was puzzled, then it dawned upon her mind That her hubby must be talking in his dreams She sat straight up with an awful start For she knew every word that he said by heart "I can see that you are married And you know I'm married too And nobody knows that you know me And nobody knows that I know you And if you care to, we'll have luncheon Every day here, just the same But sweetheart, if you talk in your sleep Good Lord, don't mention my name" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2013)
