1925
VERSE I
Wouldn't it be a change for you and me to stay at home once in a while?
We'd babaret until the break of day
I'll bet we've danced many a mile
I'll 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 turnin' night into day!
Sleepy time gal, you've danced the ev'ning away!
Before each silvery star fades out of sight,
Please give me one little kiss,
Then let us whisper 'goodnight,'
It's gettin' late and dear your pillow's waitin'

Sleepy time gal, when all your dancin' 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 only for two?
I'd get a big victrola and then
We'll start in dancing ev'ry new dance again
Then it will be a pleasant novelty to tumble in just about ten.
CHORUS
Sleepy time gal, you're turnin' night into day!
Sleepy time gal, you've danced the ev'ning away!
Before each silvery star fades out of sight,
Please give me one little kiss,
Then let us whisper 'goodnight,'
It's gettin' late and dear your pillow's waitin'

Sleepy time gal, when all your dancin' 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!
