IT SHOULDN'T HAPPEN TO A DREAM Duke Ellington / Don George / Johnny Hodges 1947 as rec by Sarah Vaughan w Ernie Wilkins & his Orch Oct 25th 1955 New York also rec by- Al Hibbler w Duke Ellington & his Orch '47 Anita O'Day w Cal Tjader '62 Carmen McRae '65 Dinah Washington Millions of stars playing tag in the skies, All of my hope living right in your eyes; So much at stake, and then I wake up, It shouldn't happen to a dream! Light-fingered clouds tuck the moon into bed, I feel your lips turn my heart on its head! Then comes the ache, again I wake up, It shouldn't shouldn't shouldn't happen to a dream! The flowers get happy and dance in the lane, The darkness no longer is deep. We're meant for each other, and it's perfectly plain Each time I walk in my sleep! Here comes the night cutting capers again; Just for a while you'll be with me, and then The bubble will break, again I'll wake up, It shouldn't happen to a dream! Here here here comes the night cutting capers again; Just for a while you'll be with me, and then The bubble will break, again I'll wake up, It shouldn't happen to a dream, It shouldn't shouldn't shouldn't happen to a dream!
