I'd Like A Dream Like That-1945
  Regal Zonophone MR3760 Formby/Cliffe

Ive always had ambitions to go upon the stage,
Last night I went to bed and dreamt that I was all the rage.

I felt a thrill, I dreamt I topped the bill
And a big revue part I could take.
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Id like a dream like that when I'm awake.

I danced with girls dressed up in strings of pearls
And all the strings started to break.
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Id like a dream like that when I'm awake.

It's always so real I wake up and feel, delirious with delight
Shouting with all my might, Oh, what a wonderful night.

One girl in fact she did a striptease act
And a liberty she tried to take
But Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Id like a dream like that when I'm awake.

Godiva's ghost I saw at my bedpost, and she gave my shoulders a shake.
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! I'd like a dream like that when I'm awake.

It's Peeping Tom she said I'm hiding from. So room for me you'd better make.
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! I'd like a dream like that when I'm awake.

It's always so real I wake up and feel, delirious with delight
Shouting with all my might, Oh, what a wonderful night.

My bare back ride gave me the cramp she cried.
But I bet you can guess where I ache.
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! I'd like a dream like that when I'm awake.

Alternative couplets

In a bedroom scene with England's Virgin queen
I took the part of a feller called Drake.
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! I'd like a dream like that when I'm awake.
It's always so real I wake up and feel delirious with delight
Shouting with all my might, Oh, what a wonderful night.

A voice so clear it shouted "drakey dear
History we're going to make
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! I'd like a dream like that when I'm awake.
It's always so real I wake up and feel delirious with delight
Shouting with all my might, Oh, what a wonderful night.
Said good queen Liz. how bitter cold it is,
But what a hot water bottle you'll make,
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! I'd like a dream like that when I'm awake.
