THOUSAND DREAMS OF YOU, A
Webster / Alter
as rec by Thomas "Fats" Waller & his Rhythm
Nov 29th 1936 Chicago
alsio rec by Abe Lyman & his Orch '37
Oh, it's time to dream a thousand dreams of you,
It's been so grand together, yes together!
You thrilled me from the start,
You brought the Spring again,
Your fingers touched the strings of my heart
And made it sing again, yes yes!
I hope you'll dream a thousand dreams of me,
Of things we planned doing together.
(You know we planned to do together, don't you! Well alright then!)
Well if you do,
I'll dream my whole life through, (scat)
A thousand, a million, a billion dreams of you!
(Yes, here we are then!)
