Silly People Lyrics

Off-Broadway Musical
Marry Me a Little - Silly People Lyrics

(cut from A Little Night Music the Musical)
(written by Stephen Sondheim - Silly People lyrics)

MAN:
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?
Silly people
Silly people
Silly people

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

Them
And us
And all

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?
Dying
Silly people
Silly people

Float
And flow
And down
We go
To drown
