"In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning" as written by and Bob Hilliard David Mann....
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

    General CommentNo other song can describe the feeling of love as perfectly as this one. It's easy to relate to simply because of the fact that if you've ever been in love, you have certainly lost sleep over the fact on whether or not you should tell her your feelings.

    Sinatra sings this beautifully. It's sad, and mourningful, yet hopeful at the same time.

    General CommentThis song makes me so horribly lonely it's a great song if you're alone on a saturday night and it's like 2:00 in the morning.

    General CommentGawd, does Sinatra ever sing this one with such warmth and feeling. I cannot believe that Sting even attempted it. It's a gorgeous song about love and missing someone. I had forgotten all about it until seeing a Victoria Secret segment (gag). Man, Sinatra owns this song, though!!!
