Lyrics

When day is gone and night comes on
Until the dawn what do I do?
I clasp your hand and wander through slumber land
Dream dancing with you

We dance between a sky serene
And fields of green sparkling with dew
It’s joy sublime whenever I spend my time
Dream dancing with you

Dream dancing
Oh, what a lucky windfall
Touching you, clutching you
All the night through

So say you love me, dear
And let me make my career
Dream dancing, dream dancing with you

When day is gone and night comes on
Until the dawn what do I do?
I clasp your hand and wander through slumber land
Dream dancing with you

We dance between a sky serene
And fields of green sparkling with dew
It’s joy sublime whenever I spend my time
Dream dancing with you

Dream dancing
Oh, what a lucky windfall
Holding you, clutching you
All the night through

So say you love me, dear
And let me make my career
Dream dancing, dream dancing
With you, with you, with you
