Street of Dreams

Lyrics:Sam M. Lewis
Music:Victor Young

The song was publishe 1932.

I didn't know this standard tune was composed by Victor Young.
It's not a song for a film, but it feels so romantic as in a dream.
The lyric was penned by Sam M. Lewis, who also wrote:
"Dinah," "For All We Know," "I'm Sitting on Top of the World,"
"Rock-a-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody,"
"Just Friends" and more.

Midnight, you heavy laden, it's midnight
Come on and trade in your old dreams for new
Your new dreams for old
I know where they're bought
I know where they're sold

Midnight, you've got to get there at midnight
And you'll be met there by others like you
Brothers as blue
Smiling on the street of dreams

Love laughs at a king,
Kings don't mean a thing on the street of dreams
Dreams broken in two
Can be made like new on the street of dreams

Gold, silver and gold
All you can hold up there on a moonbeam
Poor, no body is poor
Long as love is sure on the street of dreams

All the gold, silver and gold
All you can hold up there is in a moonbeam
Poor, nobody's poor
Long as love is sure on the street of dreams
