Two Sleepy PeopleWords & Music by Frank Loesser & Hoagy Carmichael
Recorded by Bing Crosby*, 1944
G F#7 Am7 D9 D7 Here we are, out of cigarettes, G G/F# E7 C Cdim Holding hands and yawning -- look how late it gets. GM7 G6 E7 C Am7 Cm7 Two sleepy people by dawn's early light, G Edim Am7 Cdim G Am7 - D7 And too much in love to say goodnight. G F#7 Am7 D7 Here we are, in the cozy chair, G E7 C Cdim Picking on a wishbone from the Frigidaire; GM7 G6 E7 C Am7 Cm7 Two sleepy people with nothing to say, G Edim Am7 Cdim G And too much in love to break away. Bridge: G G9 G C D9 D7 G G/F# Em Do you remember the nights we used to linger in the hall? Em7 C C/B D9 D7 G Your Father didn't like me at all. D7 G C D9 D7 C C/B Am7 G Do you remember the reason why we married in the fall? C E7 A7 D7 To rent this little nest, and get a bit of rest. G F#7 Am7 D7 Well, here we are, just about the same, G E7 C Cdim Foggy little fella, drowsy little dame; GM7 G6 E7 C Am7 Cm7 Two sleepy people by dawn's early light, G Edim Am7 Cdim G Am7 G And too much in love to say goodnight.
*While Crosby gets the nod here for attribution purposes, this particular arrangement is heavily influenced by a Carly Simon version recorded years later.
