I had a dream last night
Last night I had a dream
Everything was black and white
And it smelled like gasoline
We stood in the corner
And I held you tight
I kissed your mouth
Till my head got light
Last night when I had a dream

I had a dream last night
Last night I had a dream
Birds were flying left and right
Thru the light of a movie screen
Everyone was looking
For something to do
I even thought
I had a chance with you
Last night when I had a dream

La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la

I had a dream last night
Birds were flying left and right
Everyone was looking for something to do
I even thought I had a chance with you
Last night when I had a dream

I had a dream last night
Last night I had a dream
Everything was black and white
And it smelled like gasoline
We stood in a corner
And I held you tight
I kissed your mouth
Till my head got light
Last night when I had
Last night when I had
Last night when I had a dream

I had a dream last night
Last night I had a dream
I had a dream last night
Last night I had a dream
I had a dream last night
Last night I had a dream
Everything was black and white
And it smelled like gasoline
We stood in the corner
And I held you tight
I kissed your mouth
Till my head got light
Last night when I had a dream

I had a dream last night
Birds were flying left and right
Everyone was looking for something to do
I even thought I had a chance with you
Last night when I had a dream
