Two Sleepy People
Julie London Lyrics


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.

Dear Kim

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 get a bit of rest
To rent this little nest

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

Do you remember
The nights we used to linger in the hall?
Do you remember
The reason why we married in the fall?

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

Julie is one of those gals who seems to fly under the radar when it comes to vocal styling. She's so smooth and velvety, she still gives me goose bumps.

Dear Kim

Here we are

Look how late it gets
Two sleepy people by dawn's early light
And too much in love to say goodnight

Here we are

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 get a bit of rest
To rent this little nest

Well, here we are

Foggy little fella
Drowsy little dame
Two sleepy people by dawn's early light
And too much in love to say goodnight

Do you remember

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

My uncle and aunty were married for 65 yrs till she recently died, and this was there song, and they were lucky enough to be in love all there 65 yrs together, my uncle used to sing this to her and sang it at her funeral, how lucky to be so much in love, bless you Uncle Gordon and Aunty Cynthia xxx

Walter Cançado

Beautiful song and beautiful love story.

MJ Lejer

Beautiful story of a lasting love! Sadly, you don't see that as much today, people are not willing to work hard on a relationship long enough to reap the rewards in their later years together. 65 years is almost a lifetime, but is so worth it if people will just work at staying in love!

Stephen Verchinski

Beautiful for you to share that. So many never have experienced that deep a relationship. Many never find it at all even when it's nearby.
