Every day a little death,

In the parlor, in the bed.

In the curtains, in the silver, in the buttons, in the bread.

Every day a little sting,

In the heart and in the head.

Every move and every breath,

And you hardly feel a thing,

Brings a perfect little death.

"A Little Night Music"?  But the next verses . . . . whisper:  eeek!

Amazing amount of music he wrote and how he got his start with the Hammersteins when his life was sliding sideways.
