Subject: Lyr Req: 'I Had A Dream'
Date: 05 Sep 05 - 12:06 PM

Hi, can anybody help with the lyrics to this song.
The name of the song could be "I had a dream"
here are the only words I have.
Two little children one morning
afrer their breakfast was o'er
were laughing and playing together
alone on the dining room floor.

The girl of the dream had been talking
but    with the toss of her head
you had a dream, well I had one to
I know mine's best because it was of you.

Come sweetheart tell me,now is the time
you tell me your dream and I'll tell you mine.

for soon they were happily married
and the dream of their childhood came true.

Thanks. God Bless. newfiegirl

Written in 1908 by Charles N. Daniels, Jay Blackton, A. H. Brown, and Seymour Rice

As sung by Miss Etta Butler :

1. Two little children one morning, after their breakfast was o'er,
Were laughing and playing together, alone on the dining room floor.
The girl of a dream had been talking, but refused with a toss of her head
To tell it all to her playmate, until he coaxingly said:

CHORUS: You had a dream. Well, I had one too.
I know mine's best 'cause it was of you.
Come, sweetheart, tell me. Now is the time.
You tell me your dream. I'll tell you mine.

2. Tom said, "I dreamed you had promised that someday we should be wed."
"Why, that's just exactly like my dream," Mary then blushingly said.
Time, they say, brings many changes, but their love no change ever knew;
And so they were happily married. The dream of their childhood came true.

3. Sadness has entered the household where happiness once reigned supreme.
The sunshine of life now has vanished. Grief had dispelled their bright dream;
For Mary, his kind loving helpmate, had yesterday passed away,
And in sorrow Tom thinks of the morning when in childhood to her he did say:

There was a terrific jive counterpoint to this song, made popular by the Kirby Stone Four, I believe. Lots of sound snips on the web. Just look for "The I Had A Dream Dear Rock".

The Lester S. Levy Collection of Sheet Music has YOU TELL ME YOUR DREAM, I'LL TELL YOU MINE. Lyrics are identical to those posted above, but it says:

Words, Seymour Rice and Albert H. Brown. Music, Charles N. Daniels. Published, 1899.

[According to The Internet Broadway Database, Jay Blackton was born in 1909, so couldn't have had anything to do with the original song, although he might have done a later arrangement.]

Mills Bros sang :-

I had a dream dear, you had one too,
Mine was the best dream, it was of you,
Come sweetheart tell me, now is the time,
You tell me your dream, and I will tell you mine.

That was all the lyric they used, I think I still have it on CD somewhere, so will check who it is credited to.
