I WORK EIGHT HOURS, SLEEP EIGHT HOURS, THAT LEAVES EIGHT HOURS FOR LOVE (Music: Ted Snyder / Lyrics: Edgar Leslie & Bert Kalmar) Nora Bayes - 1914 Danny Maloney who worked in a store Waited on pretty young girls by the score He tried to date up each one that he met For Dan was a real ladies' man One girl he asked her when he chanced to call "Why is it you're never tired at all?" And as he hung up his hat in the hall Danny said, "I'll tell you why" I work eight hours, I sleep eight hours That leaves eight hours for love Eight long hours with nothin' to do Think of the fun if I spent them with you To prove I love ya, I'll kiss and hug ya And if you want an encore My sleep I'll be shirkin', I'd even stop workin' So I can love you some more Dan had to serve on the jury one day Up on the witness stand, young Mrs. Grey Told how her husband from home stayed away She said, "I want to be free" After the case had been thoroughly tried "What is your verdict?" the magistrate cried Dan looked her over and then he replied "You need a husband like me" I work eight hours, I sleep eight hours That leaves eight hours for love Eight long hours with nothin' to do Why, think of the fun if I spent them with you To prove I love ya, I'll kiss and hug ya And if you want an encore Why, my sleep I'll be shirkin', I'd even quit workin' So I can love you some more I work eight hours, I sleep eight hours That leaves eight hours for love Eight long hours with nothin' to do Think of the fun if I spent them with you To prove I love ya, I'll kiss and hug ya And if you want an encore Why, my sleep I'll be shirkin', I'd even quit workin' So I can love you some more (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2018)
