[Verse 1]
I’ve got a secret to tell you
No one else must hear
It just concerns you and me dear
Come and cuddle near
I’ve been waiting month to tell you
Not my dream’s come true
It will sure surprise you
Listen dear please do.

I have build a Dream House
Cozy little dream house
Happiness is there, hiding ev’rywhere, you will find
Preacher man is waiting
Folks are congregating
All it needs is your YES,
I’ll do the rest
There’s a pretty Blue Room
Cozy Bride and Groom Room
Roses ‘round the door, you will love it more ev’ry day
And tho its big enough for you and me
Someday there may be Tea for THREE
In that little Dream House that I’ve built for you.
