Dreary days are over Life's a four leaf clover Sessions of depression are through Every hope I longed for long ago, comes true Long ago and far away I dreamed a dream one day And now that dream is here beside me Long the skies were overcast But now the clouds have passed You're here at last! Chills run up and down my spine Aladdin's Lamp is mine The dream I dreamed was not denied me Just one look and then I knew That all I longed for Long ago was you ********************************* As recorded by MARTHA MEARS (who provided the singing voice for Rita Hayworth) and GENE KELLY for the film "Cover Girl": MARTHA: Long Ago and Faraway I dreamed a dream one day And now that dream is here beside me Long the skies were overcast But now the clouds have passed You're here at last Chills run up and down my spine Aladdin's lamp is mine The dream I dreamed was not denied me Just one look and then I knew That all I dreamed of long ago was you GENE: I dreamed a dream one day, And now that dream is here beside me Long the skies were overcast But now the clouds have passed You're here at last Chills run up and down my spine Aladdin's lamp is mine MARTHA: The dream I dreamed was not denied me Just one look and then I knew BOTH: That all I dreamed of long ago was you ********************************
