Best song lyrics ever?

dream a little dream

In reflecting on the songs in this week’s podcast, I wonder if Gus Kahn wrote the perfect lyric back in 1931 …

Stars shining bright above you;
Night breezes seem to whisper ‘I love you’.
Birds singing in the sycamore tree.
Dream a little dream of me.

Say nighty-night and kiss me;
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me.
While I’m alone, blue as can be,
Dream a little dream of me.

Stars fading but I linger on, dear –
Still craving your kiss.
I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear,
Just saying this…

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you –
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you.
But in your dreams, whatever they be,
Dream a little dream of me.
