Swinging The Dream, 1939
REFRAIN 1
Darn that dream I dream each night.
You say you love me and you hold me tight,
But when I awake, you're out of sight.
Oh, darn that dream.
REFRAIN 2
Darn your lips and darn your eyes.
They lift me high above the moonlit skies,
Then I tumble out of paradise.
Oh, darn that dream.
BRIDGE
Darn that one-track mind of mine.
I can't understand that you don't care.
Just to change the mood I'm in
I'd welcome a nice old nightmare.
REFRAIN 3
Darn that dream and bless it too.
Without that dream, I never would have you,
But it haunts me and it won't come true.
Oh, darn that dream.
