Mis -ter Sand -man, bring me a dream.
Make her com -plex -ion like peach -es and cream,
Give her two lips like ros -es in clo -ver,
Then tell me that my lone -some nights are o -ver.
Sand -man, I'm so a -lone,
Don't have no -bod -y to call my own,
Please turn on your mag -ic beam,
Mis -ter Sand -man bring me a dream.
