Dream along with me, I'm on my way to a star 
Come along, come along, leave your worries where they are 
Up and beyond the sky, watchin' the world roll by 
Sharin' a kiss, a sigh, just use your imagination! 

On a cloud of love, we'll hear the music of night 
We can wink at the moon as we hold each other tight 
And if we go in the right direction, heaven can't be very far 
Dream along with me, I'm on my way to a star! 

( We can wink at the moon 
As we hold each other tight . . . ) 
And if we go in the right direction, heaven can't be very far 
Dream along with me, I'm on my way to a star! 

Words and Music by Carl Sigman, 1956
