Dream a dream for me

Hey little daughter
Dream a dream for me
I’ll rock you softly in my arms
As you sleep so peacefully

The years have gone so quickly
Here I’m twenty, you’re three
Tomorrows seem so far away
So dream a dream for me

Of sunshiney days
And star-filled nights
Of puppy dogs
And flying kites

Of clowns and ponies
And ferris wheels
Of lions and tigers
And circus seals

Of trucks and cars
And choo-choo trains
Of boats and ships
And silver planes

And when you wake
You’ll run and play
You’ll grow farther from me
By one more day

So little daughter
For this moment be
A babe in my arms
And dream a dream for me
