As Dick said.. you will have much more luck if you start a new thread for each song request with a title containing the title of the song......

but from memory.....

here we are ??don't we look a mess,
lipstick on my collar, wrinkles in your dress
two sleepy people by dawn's early light
and too much in love to say goodnight

slainte

Thanks for the lyrics Joe--here they are for all:

TWO SLEEPY PEOPLE
- from "Thanks for the Memory"
- words by Frank Loesser, music by Hoagy Carmichael

Here we are, out of cigarettes,
Holding hands and yawning. Look how late it gets!
Two sleepy people by dawn's early light,
And too much in love to say goodnight.

Here we are, in the cozy chair,
Picking on a wishbone, from the Frigidaire:
Two sleepy people with nothing to say,
And too much in love to break away.

Do you remember
The nights we used to linger in the hall?
Father didn't like you at all.
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:
Foggy little fella, drowsy little dame—
Two sleepy people by dawn's early light,
And too much in love to say goodnight.
