Hey There
From the Musical “The Pajama Game”

Phrasing, as sung by Rosemary Clooney, gender switched for male singer

Late-ly when I’m in my room / all by my-self /
In the so-li-ta-ry gloom / I talk to my-self /

[Du du du / du du / du du ]

Hey there / you with the stars in your eyes /
Love ne-ver made / a fool of you /
You used to be / too wise /

Hey there / you on that high fly-in’ cloud /
Though she won’t throw a crumb to you /
You think some day / she’ll come to you /

Bet-ter for-get her /
Her with her nose in the air /
She has you dan-cin’ / on a string /
Break it / and she won’t care /

Won’t you take this ad-vice /
I hand you / like a bro-ther /
Or are you not see-in’ things too clear /
Are you too much in love to hear /
Is it all go-in’ in one ear /
And out the o-ther? /

Hey there / you with the stars in your eyes /
– Are you talk-in’ to me?
Love ne-ver made / a fool of you /
– Not un-til now /
You used to be / too wise /
– Yes / I was / once

Will you take this ad-vice /
I hand you / like a bro-ther /
Or am I not see-in’ things too clear /
Are you just too far gone to hear /
Is it all go-in’ in one ear /
And out the o-ther?
