Darn That Dream Jimmy Van Heusen, Eddie DeLange (1939), Benny Goodman (#1 in 1940)

Darn That Dream I dream each night,
You say you love me and you hold me tight,
But when I awake you're out of sight,
Oh, Darn That Dream.

Darn your lips and darn your eyes,
They lift me high above the moonlit skies,
Then I tumble out of paradise,
Oh, Darn That Dream.

Darn that one-track mind of mine,
It can't understand that you don't care,
Just to change the mood I'm in,
I'd welcome a nice old nightmare.

Darn That Dream and bless it too,
Without that dream, I never would have you.
But it haunts me and it won't come true,
Oh, Darn That Dream.
