Dreaming is such a natural thing Adventure into a boring life it can bring A dream can be a most pleasant surprise I felt ashamed when I managed to finally open my eyes Yes you can wake up with feelings of guilt And hiding your red face under the quilt We may dream of clear blue skies and beautiful sands And of holidays in very distant exotic lands We could be forgiven for dreaming of a better life And to get away from the trouble and strife Maybe one day our dreams will become true to life Better not mention this to the wife When something prays upon my mind To dream about it is not unusual I find Awoken from a dream can leave you in lumber If only I had been left a little longer to slumber GEORGE MCLANDERS
