“Sweet dream baby
Sweet dream baby
Sweet dream baby
How long must I dream

Dream baby, got me dreamin’ sweet dreams
The whole day through
Dream baby, got me dreamin’ sweet dreams
Night time too

I love you and I’m dreaming of you
But that won’t do
Dream baby, make me stop my dreamin’
You can make my dreams come true

Sweet dream baby
Sweet dream baby
Sweet dream baby
How long must I dream

Dream baby, got me dreamin’ sweet dreams
The whole day through
Dream baby, got me dreamin’ sweet dreams
Night time too

I love you and I’m dreaming of you
But that won’t do
Dream baby, make me stop my dreamin’
You can make my dreams come true

Sweet dream baby

Sweet dream baby
How long must I dream

Sweet dream baby
Sweet dream baby
Sweet dream baby”
