Lyrics verse 1:
WOULDN'T IT BE
A CHANGE FOR YOU
AND ME
TO STAY AT HOME
ONCE IN A WHILE?
WE CABARET
UNTIL THE BREAK
OF DAY,
I'LL BET WE'VE DANCED
MANY A MILE.
I'D LIKE TO SEE
A MOVIE ONCE MORE,
THEY DON'T KEEP PEOPLE
STAYING UP UNTIL FOUR.
WOULDN'T IT BE
A PLEASANT NOVELTY
TO TUMBLE IN
EARLY ONCE MORE?

Chorus:
SLEEPY TIME GAL,
YOU'RE TURNING
NIGHT INTO DAY.
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
GOOD NIGHT.
IT'S GETTING LATE
AND, DEAR,
YOUR PILLOW'S WAITING
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,
EIGHT-O'CLOCK,
SLEEPY TIME GAL.

verse 2:
WOULDN'T IT BE
A PLEASANT SIGHT
TO SEE A KITCHENETTE
ONLY FOR YOU?
WOULDN'T IT BE
A PLEASANT SIGHT
TO SEE A TABLE
SET FOR TWO?
I'LL GET A BIG VICTROLA
AND THEN,
WE'LL START IN DANCING
EVERY NEW DANCE AGAIN.
THEN IT WILL BE
A PLEASANT NOVELTY
TO TUMBLE IN
ABOUT TEN.

Chorus:
SLEEPY TIME GAL,
YOU'RE TURNING
NIGHT INTO DAY.
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
GOOD NIGHT.
IT'S GETTING LATE
AND, DEAR,
YOUR PILLOW'S WAITING
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,
EIGHT-O'CLOCK,
SLEEPY TIME GAL.
