Oh, what a dream
Oh, what a dream

I dreamed I walked in a field of flowers
(Oh, what a dream)
The houses all were silver towers
(Oh, what a dream)

Beside the road an angel sat
I said, "Hello" and tipped my hat
And stopped when I saw her smile
And sat me down a while, I sat me down a while

Oh, what a dream
Oh, what a dream

I tried the angel for a kiss
(Oh, what a dream)
But she turned away and my lips missed
(Oh, what a dream)

She said, "Sir, I'll have you know
I met you just a while ago
You're welcome for to sit
But calm yourself a bit, Sir, calm yourself a bit"

Oh, what a dream
Oh, what a dream

I fell in love like one, two, three
(Oh, what a dream)
I asked the angel to marry me
(Oh, what a dream)

She said, "Sir, I can't marry you
But I'm a dream that can come true
There are dreams of much my worth
That live upon the earth, Sir, live upon the earth"

Oh, what a dream
Oh, what a dream

Then I awoke and found my love
(Oh, what a dream)
As heavenly as the one above
(Oh, what a dream)

We'll marry in a sea of flowers
Home will be a silver tower
There'll be heaven in my life
With an angel for a wife, with an angel for a wife

Oh, what a dream
Oh, what a dream
