Dreams Go By
There you stand in your dungarees Looking all grown up and so very pleased When you write your poems they have so much to say When you speak your dreams it takes my breath away You know I want to be a ball player A regular slugging fool But I guess our dreams must wait awhile Until we finish school And so you and I We watch our years go by We watch our sweet dreams fly Far away, but maybe someday I don't know when But we will dream again And we'll be happy then 'Til our time just drifts away There you stand in your wedding dress You're so beautiful that I must confess I'm so proud you have chosen me When a doctor is what you want to be You know I want to be a painter, girl A real artistic snob But I guess we'll have our children first You'll find a home, I'll get a job Listen to the seasons passing Listen to the wind blow Listen to the children laughing Where do broken dreams go? There you stand in your tailored suit So many years gone by, but you're still so cute You take the car to go and meet the bus When our grandchildren come to visit us You say you should have been a ballerina, babe There are songs I should have sung But I guess our dreams have come and gone You're 'sposed dream when you are young And so you and I We'll watch our years go by We'll watch our sweet dreams fly Far away, but maybe someday I don't know when But we will dream again And we'll be happy then 'Til our time just drifts away
