Hey nonny ding dong, alang, alang, alang
Boom ba-doh, ba-doo, ba-doodle-ay

Oh, life could be a dream [sh-boom]
If I could take you up in paradise up above [sh-boom]
If you would tell me I'm the only one that you love
Live could be a dream, sweetheart

[Hello, hello again, sh-boom and hopin' we'll meet again]
Oh, life could be a dream [sh-boom]
If only all my precious plans would come true
If you would let me spend my whole life lovin' you
Life could be a dream, sweetheart

Now every time I look at you
Something is on my mind [dat-dat-dat-dat-dat-duh]
If you do what I want you to
Baby, we'd be so fine

Oh, life could be a dream [sh-boom]
If I could take you up in paradise up above [sh-boom]
If you would tell me I'm the only one that you love
Life could be a dream, sweetheart

If I could take you up in paradise up above
If you would tell me I'm the only one that you love
Life could be a dream, sweetheart
