Track Title: Two Little People
Prime Artist: Unknown
Lyrics by: Oscar Hammerstein II (O. Greeley Clendenning H. II)
Music by: Richard Rodgers
Outtake from: Carousel 1945 (S) 1957 (M)
You can't hear a sound~not the turn of a leaf,
Nor the fall of a wave, hittin' the sand.
The tide's creepin' up on the beach like a thief,
Afraid to be caught stealin' the land.
On a night like this I start to wonder what life is all about.
And I always say two heads are better than one, to figger it out.
There's a helluva lot o' stars in the sky,
And the sky's so big the sea looks small,
And two little people~
You and I~
We don't count at all.
There's a feathery little cloud floatin' by
Like a lonely leaf on a big blue stream.
And two little people~you and I~
Who cares what we dream?
