"In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" is a song featured in Frank Sinatra's 1955 Capitol album In the Wee Small Hours.

This song was recorded under Reprise Records in Sinatra's 1963 album, Sinatra's Sinatra, and the 1965 album, A Man and His Music. Sinatra rerecorded the song in a melody of it and "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry" featuring Carly Simon, for his 1993 Capitol album, Duets.

History Edit

Frank Sinatra's recording of "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" was the very first of this song. Written by David Mann and Bob Hilliard, the song was hastily written as Mann needed to leave New York, however, Hilliard was able to talk him out about leaving for a short while longer. In this small session of impromptu songwriting, the songwriting pair quickly wrote out "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning."[1]

Lyrics Edit

In the wee small hours of the morning
While the whole wide world is fast asleep
You lie awake and think about the girl
And never ever think of counting sheep

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson
You'd be hers if only she would call
In the wee small hours of the morning
That's the time you miss her most of all

When your lonely heart has learned its lesson
You'd be hers if only she would call
In the wee small hours of the morning
That's the time you miss her most of all
