Song lyrics to Dormi-Dormi-Dormi (Sleep-Sleep-Sleep), Music by Harry Warren, Lyrics by Sammy Cahn. Sung by Salvatore Baccaloni and Jerry Lewis in Rock-a-Bye Baby.
Dormi, dormi, dormi, good night and sleep well, my love,
Dormi, dormi, dormi, angels are watching above;
Till the dawn on tiptoe steals over your window sill,
May ev’ry bright star attend thee
And befriend thee with its light.
This little song may I send thee,
Dormi, dormi, my love, good-night.

Song lyrics to Money Burns a Hole in My Pocket. Music by Jule Styne, Lyrics by Bob Hilliard. Sung by Dean Martin in Living It Up
Money Burns a Hole in my Pocket is a sweet love song …. With a funny twist! In the movie, while Dean Martin is serenading her, Janet Leigh is distracting him …. From realizing that Jerry Lewis is being taken to a hospital!
Money burns a hole in my pocket
How I wish I had millions of dollars and nothing to do
But just buy pretty presents for you
Song lyrics to Every Street’s a Boulevard in Old New York. Music by Jule Styne. Lyrics by Bob Hilliard. Sung by Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis in Living It Up
I tell you every street’s a boulevard in old New York
Every street’s a highway of your dreams
It’s a thrill to shop on 34th street
Or down in Union Square
We like the people you meet
On Mulberry street, have you ever been there

Song lyrics to The Old Calliope, Lyrics by Mack David, Music by Jerry Livingston. Performed by Dean Martin (and Jerry Lewis) in Sailor Beware
Editor’s note: So everyone knows: there’s a contention on the proper pronunciation of “calliope”. I’ve heard circus people (and other performers) say “cal-ee-OPE”, while other people pronounce it “cal-I-o-pea”. In this song, “the old calliope” uses the second pronunciation.
Second note: Technically, Jerry Lewis sings along with Dean Martin, but not very often — and then, clownishly. This is clearly Dean’s song. Although the dancing the two perform is clearly a 50/50 proposition.Read More »The Old Calliope [song lyrics]
