Prisoner's dream

Last night as I lay sleeping, I dremed a dream so fair
I dreamed about my darling, the rose was in her hair
I dreamed I left this prison, started in life anew
She told me that she loved me, told me her love was beer

    It was only a dream just a prisoner's dream
    As I lay on my cold prison bed
    My dreams of you can never come true
    Dear girl, I wish that I were dead

I dreamed she called me darling, kissed me and held me tight
I dreamed that we were married, dreamed of a starry night
I dreamed about our children, playing around my knee
They loved me, called me daddy, they thought the world of me

  * Refrain

I dreamed a dream so lovely, heaven on earth it seemed
My wife and little children came to me in that dream
They threw their arms around me, I was their pride and joy
My little wife she loved me, I was her darling boy

  * Refrain
