THERE'S A TRAIN OUT FOR DREAMLAND
Carl Kress / Frederich H Heider
as rec by Nat "King" Cole w Frank De Vol & his Orch
Hear a bell a-ringing,
All the children singing,
You'll be singing too!
hear whistle blowing,
Soon we'll all be going,
You'll be going too!
There's a train out for dreamland
That rides on a peppermint rail;
It only stops at ice cream stations
To pick up crackerjack mail.
There's a train out for dreamland,
It's run by a chocolate brown bear;
It runs around a candy mountain
As it sails through the air.
You'll see a big white snowman
Who melts when he hears you laugh,
A singin' mouse,
A liquorice house,
And a funny-looking jelly bean giraffe.
All aboard now for dreamland,
We'll choo-choo-choo-choo to the sky,
So if you want to go to dreamland,
Well then, just close your eyes!
