No. 18 - Song - Fred and Chorus - "Dreamland"

MIDI File

Fred: Now boys and girls have all been told
that when the dustmen creep
They all become as good as gold
directly they're asleep.
In dreamland none dare make a noise,
No angry word is said.
They cannot break each other's toys
in the land of peace and bed.
Dear little girl in dreamland, dreamland, dreamland,
Each little eyelid closing,
on your pillow of white reposing,
Dear little girl in dreamland, dreamland, dreamland,
The dull world all seems to be chocolate creams
in the land of dreams.
   
  Now little girls are apt to grow,
and dolls are put away,
And ev'rything in life seems so
much chang'd from childhood's day;
Grave cares and worries you have met,
In love you're fathoms deep.
The only place you can forget
Is in the land of sleep.
Dear little girl in dreamland, dreamland, dreamland,
Each little eyelid closing,
on your pillow of white reposing,
Dear little girl in dreamland, dreamland, dreamland,
The dull world all seems to be chocolate creams
in the land of dreams.
   
  You maids beware, young men will woo
And tell the old, old tale,
Prince Charming will descend on you
And all your pluck will fail;
And as you hear his story
Into fairyland you peep,
You dream of sun and skies and smiles
In the luscious land of sleep.
Dear little girl in dreamland, dreamland, dreamland,
Each little eyelid closing,
on your pillow of white reposing,
Dear little girl in dreamland, dreamland, dreamland,
The dull world all seems to be chocolate creams
in the land of dreams.
Chorus: Dear little girl in dreamland, dreamland, dreamland,
Each little eyelid closing,
on your pillow of white reposing,
Dear little girl in dreamland, dreamland, dreamland,
The dull world all seems to be chocolate creams
in the land of dreams, of dreams.
