hey mr. sandman

dearest mr. sandman

would you please come and oh take me away

have you found it yet

will you kindly grant me it

sparkling dust glittering in the air

i can see it from a distance

beyond the fog will i find it there

hey mr. sandman

dearest mr. sandman

have you found it yet

will you grant me it

will i have to work for it

do i have to trade for it

everything here is a wonder

all you give, a treasure but

hey mr. sandman

dearest mr. sandman

what I've asked

have you found it yet

the dreams they unravel,

string me up,

then do a do over

its okay but they're always the same

they show me colors

they show me lightning

they show me glimpses

but so very fast they're over

mr. sandman

dearest mr. sandman

oh please have you found it yet

in a barrel hearts, of wishes, and desire

that which shines of gold, silver, and all colors of light

have you found it yet

my wish, my dream - a falling star

have you found it yet

my heart, my desire - a falling star

oh please mr. sandman

tell me have you seen him yet

tell me you have and

will you take me there

will you grant me a dream

oh mr. sandman a dream!

my dream - a bright falling star
