Marry Me a Little - Silly People Lyrics
(cut from A Little Night Music the Musical)
(written by Stephen Sondheim - Silly People lyrics)
Lie here with me on the grass
Let the wind be our words
As the night smiles down
Don't they know, don't they?
No, they don't, do they?
Voices glide by, let them pass
Let them float in their words
'Til they slowly drown
Don't they know, don't they, what they want?
Silly, silly people:
Patient and polite
Crying in their teacups
Shying from the night
When now it smiles, it smiles for lovers
When next it smiles, it smiles for fools
The last it smiles, it smiles for them:
The others, the rememberers, the truly silly people
Lie then with me, closer still
You can float in my arms
'Til we gently drown
Don't they know, don't they, what it means?
