[Robert]
When the children are asleep we sit and dream,
The things that every other dad and mother dream.
When the children are asleep and lights are low,
If I still love you the way I love you today,
You'll pardon my sayin', I told you so...
When the children are asleep, I'll dream with you
We'll think what fun we have had and be glad
That it's all came true

[Barbara]
When the children are asleep we sit and dream,

[Robert]
Dream all alone...

[Barbara]
The things that every other dad and mother dream

[Robert]
Dreams that won't be interrupted...
When the children are asleep and lights are low

[Barbara]
Lo and behold...
If I still love you
The way I love you today,
You'll pardon my sayin', I told you so...
When the children are asleep, I'll dream with you

[Robert]
You'll dream with me...

[Barbara]
We'll think what fun we have had and be glad
That it's all came true!

[Robert]
When today is a long time ago...

[Both]
You'll still hear me say
That the best dream I know is you

[Barbara]
When the children are asleep I dream with you
