Lyrics

What price happiness? What price happiness?
Who can truthfully say?
But for every shall with tears we pay

Love is happiness. I’ve had happiness,
But it ended one day
Now I look at life a different way

When skies are cloudy and gray
They’re only gray for a day
So wrap your troubles in dreams
And dream your troubles away

Until that sunshine peeps through
There’s only one thing to do
Wrap your troubles in dreams
And dream your troubles away

Your castles may tumble, that’s fate, after all
Life’s really funny that way
No use to grumble, smile as they fall
Weren’t you king for a day?

Remember that sunshine
Always follows the rain
So wrap your troubles in dreams
And dream your troubles away
Away, away, away
Away, away, away
Away
