Say, here we are, in this cozy chair, Picking on a wishbone from the Frigidaire, Two sleepy people, with nothing to say, Much to much in love to break away. Do you the remember the nights we used to linger in the hall? Papa didn't like you at all, But I was crazy 'bout you, baby! Do you remember the reason why we married in the Fall? To rent this little nest, and get a bit of rest! Well, here we are, just about the same, Gawky little fellow, dizzy little dame, Two sleepy people, by dawn's early light, Much to much in love to say good-night. Good-night! *********************** TWO SLEEPY PEOPLE As recorded by Hoagy Carmichael & Ella Logan w Perry Botkin & his Orch rec Oct 14th 1938 [hc] Here we are, out of cigarettes, Holding hands and yawning, [el] Look how late it gets. Two sleepy peopl, by dawn's early light, And too much in love to say good-night. [hc] Here we are, in the cozy chair, Picking on a wishbone - [el] - from the Frigidaire. Two sleepy people with nothing to say, And too much in love to break away. [hc] Do you the remember The nights we used to linger in the hall? [el] Father didn't like you at all! [hc] I call him Pops! Do you remember The reason why we married in the Fall? [el] To rent this little nest And get a bit of rest. Well, [hc] Here we are, just about the same, [el] Foggy little fella, [hc] Drowsy little dame. [el] Two sleepy people by dawn's early light, And too much in love to say good-night. Here we are, don't we look a mess, Lipstick on your collar, wrinkles in my dress! Two sleepy people will know very well They're too much in love to break the spell. [hc] Here we are, crazy in the head, Gee your eyes are gorgeous, even when they're red! Two sleepy people by dawn's early light, And too much in love to say good-night. Do you remember When we went dancing at The Palomar? When it was over, Why naturally we cuddled in the car! [el] So you ran out of gas, And I was green as gas! [hc] Here we are, keeping up the pace, [el] Letting each tomorrow slap us in the face! [both] Two sleepy people by dawn's early light, [hc] And too much - [both] - in love to say goodnight!
