Kay Kyser – (I Gotta Get Some) Shuteye lyrics

(Gotta Get Some) Shut-Eye
Glenn Miller
Words by Johnny Mercer, music by Walter Donaldson.

As recorded by the Glenn Miller Orchestra on February 6th, 1939 with Marion Hutton.

Gotta get some shut-eye
Give the world the go-by
Got an awful lot of dreamin?to do...

Gotta get some shut-eye
Where the kisses flow by
Got an awful lot of dreams to come true

Gonna let that sandman sprinkle me with stars
Only hope that old lamp lighter lets me hold my baby tighter

So Im going bye-bye
Catch myself some shut-eye
Got an awful lot of dreaming to do!
