I’ll Buy That Dream

From the Film: Sing Your Way Home (1945)

Imagine you with your head on my shoulder,
And me with my lips getting bolder,
A sky full of moon and a sweet mellow tune,
I’ll buy that dream.
Imagine you in a gown white and flow’ry,
And me thanking dad for your dowry,
A church full of folks and those last minute jokes,
I’ll buy that dream.
A honeymoon in Cairo in a brand new autogyro,
Then home on a rocket in a wink,
We’ll settle down in Dallas in a little plastic palace,
It’s not as crazy as you think.
Imagine you on our first annivers’ry
With someone like me in the nurs’ry,
It doesn’t sound bad and if it can be had,
I’ll buy that dream.
