"Sleepy Time Gal" Harry James
#1

Another favorite of my Dad's. I'd almost forgotten it, but sometimes these memories come out of nowhere. Last night, while standing at the kitchen sink washing dishes ( I know it's shocking, but I don't own a dishwasher) - I remembered how he'd walk around singing or humming it. I grinned from ear to ear & sang it.

 

Here are the lyrics (ha! they aren't politically correct);

 

"Sleepy time gal,you're turning night into days

Sleepy time gal you've danced the evening away

Before each silvery star fades out of sight

Please give me one little kiss then let us whisper goodnight

It's getting late and dear your pillow's waitin'

 

Sleepy time gal when all your dancing is through

Sleepy time gal I'll find a cottage for you

You'll learn to cook and to sew

What's more you'll love it I know

When you're a stay at home ,play at home, 8 o'clock sleepy time gal
