lyrics

Poor little dreamer
While away the hours
Nostalgic for the memories you never knew
With borrowed visions of a better time
You know you’re out of tune
Singing sighs of hidden fantasies that no one understands
But you, little dreamer
Dream on

Poor little dreamer
Don’t open up your eyes
Or you may find the old folks aren’t at home no more
Swanee River dying
Wrote her legacy on muddy shores:
To each and every man I leave five million grains
Of dust and sand
But you, little dreamer
Dream on

Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on

Poor little dreamer
If you were only rich
Then you could really build your castle in the sky
Well, or at least atop a mountain
You could sleep upon a cloud
And wear its silver lining in your hair
With no one else around
But you, little dreamer
Don’t turn away from me
You know I’d be the last to wake you from your slumber
I know it seems sometimes that I’m not with you
Please don’t get me wrong
You see, I gave up dreaming long ago
One Sunday on the moon
But you, little dreamer
Dream on

Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on

Poor little dreamer
You know you’re old, you’re gone
No earthly good to anyone
You’re all alone now
But earthly goods, they come and go
As we have seen so many times
So if you think you have the time
Then maybe someday you can dream
For me, little dreamer
Dream on

Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on and on and on
Dream on and on
