From the album Demos

This song is very popular in our live concerts. I read that it was first recorded by the "Ozzie Nelson Band" back in the 1930s. Yes, the same Ozzie Nelson of "Ozzie And Harriet" fame. Or for me, Rick Nelson's parents. It was then recorded in the mid-1960s and popularized by "The Mams And the Papas." We've been doing it for quite a while now.

Lyrics

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper 'I love you'
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone, blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams, whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you
But in your dreams, whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me
