I WISH I KNEW THE NAME (OF THE BOY/GIRL IN MY DREAMS) (Alan Roberts / Lester Lee) Dinah Washington - 1946 The Mills Brothers - 1947 John Laurenz - 1947 Gordon MacRae - 1948 Ray Noble & His Orch. - 1948 As recorded by GORDON MacRAE with Victor Young's Orchestra and the Jeff Alexander Chorus: I wish I knew the name of the girl in my dreams So I could change her name to mine I walk down every street when the sun is bright Hoping to meet the one I hold each night So if you run into someone out of the blue Tell her to drop me a line I know her tender kiss, I know her sweet caress But, huh, gosh darn it all, I don't know her address I wish I knew the name of the girl in my dreams So I could change her name to mine (Instrumental Break) (I wish I knew the name of the girl in my dreams) (So I could change her name to mine, to mine) I walk down every street when the sun is bright Hoping to meet the one I hold each night (So if you run into someone out of the blue) (Tell her to drop me a line, just a line) I know her tender kiss, I know her sweet caress But gosh darn it all, I don't know her address I wish I knew the name of the girl in my dreams So I could change her name, so it would be the same So it would be the same as mine (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2015)
