When evening shadows start in a falling
Over the radio I hear you calling,
Thousands of miles apart,
Still you are near in my heart,
Morning, night and noon
You can hear me croon.
Dream Daddy, Dream Daddy, Wonderful Daddy of mine,
Ev'ry night after I've said my pray'rs,
Your tender voice drives away all my cares,
Dream Daddy, Dream Daddy, When the stars begin to shine,
That's when I lay away my books and my toys,
And listen in with all the girlies and boys,
Dream Daddy, Dream Daddy, Wonderful Daddy of mine. mine.
All thru' the day I'm pinning to hear you,
You're far away I just wish I were near you,
All of your stories sweet,
Make my whole life so complete,
Even in my dreams,
You're with me it seems.
