The nighttime, the nighttime is calling me,
It’s dream-time, sweet dream-time, for you and me.
I’m longing, I’m longing to close my eyes, for there a sweet vision lies.
My little dream girl,
You pretty dream girl,
Sometimes I seem, girl, to own your heart.
Each night you haunt me,
By day you taunt me,
I want you, I want you, I need you so.
Don’t let me waken, learn I’m mistaken,
Find my faith shaken, in you sweetheart.
I’d sigh for, I’d cry for, sweet dreams forever,
My little dream girl goodnight.
While shadows, are creeping through darkest night,
In dreamland, sweet dreamland, there’s your love-light.
It’s beaming, it’s gleaming and all for me, your vision I long to see.
