12-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
Dreaming of you, that's all I do.
Night and day, for you I'm pining.
And in your eyes, blue as the skies,
I can see the lovelight softly shining.
Because you love me there, it seems,
Pray meet me in the land of dreams.
Meet me tonight in dreamland,
Under the silv'ry moon.
Meet me tonight in dreamland,
Where love's sweet roses bloom.
Come with the lovelight gleaming,
In your dear eyes of blue.
Meet me in dreamland, Sweet dreamy dreamland,
There let my dreams come true.
