Verse:
Would -n't it be a change for you and me to stay at home once in a while?
We cab -a -ret un -til the break of day, I'll bet we've danced man -y a mile.
I'd like to see a mov -ie once more, They don't keep peo -ple stay -in up un -til four.
Would -n't it be a pleas -and nov -el -ty to tum -ble in ear -ly once more?
 
Chorus:
Sleep -y time gal, You're turn -ing night in -to day,
Sleep -y time gal, You've danced the ev -'ning a -way,
Be -fore each sil -ver -y star Fades out of sight,
Please give me one lit -tle kiss, Then let us whis -per "Good -night," It's get -tin' late and, dear, your pil -low's wait -in;
Sleep -y time gal, When all your danc -in' is thru,
Sleep -y time gal, I'll find a cot -tage 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, Sleep -y time gal.
