[Verse 1]
A lady and a lassie were straying
Along a shady lane
Tho’ all the old world seemed so happy
He wore a look of pain
Sweetheart I would ask you a question
He sighed, her cheeks turned red
You can answer me
Flo with a Yes or a No
Then he kissed the lass and said

[Refrain]
Last night I dreamed of you,
I lingered by your side
Begging your promise true
That you would be my bride
You sadly answered no
My heart is not for you
Now I love you so well
That I’d like you to tell me
Do Dreams Come True.

[Verse 2]
The lass coyly turned as she answered
They do but in this way
For instance you dream all is sunshine
‘Twill surely rain they say
Then seeking to banish his sorrow
She said, I thought you knew
If you dreamed I said
No don’t be a downcast Joe
For the opposite comes true

[Refrain – Lady]
Last night you dreamed of me,
You lingered at my side
Begging my promise true
That I would be your bride
I sadly answered no
My heart is not for you
Now I love you so well
That I’d like you to tell me
Do Dreams Come True
