Lyrics IT'S REALLY TRUE
HOW NOTHING MATTERS.
NO MAD,
MAD WORLD
AND NO MAD HATTERS.
NO ONE'S PITCHIN'
'CAUSE THERE AIN'T
NO BATTERS
IN COCONUT GROVE.
DON'T BAR THE DOOR.
THERE'S NO ONE COMIN'.
THE OCEAN'S ROAR
WILL DULL THE DRUMMIN'
OF ANY CITY THOUGHTS
OR CITY WAYS.
THE OCEAN'S BREEZE
IS COOL.
MY MIND,
THE SALTY DAYS
ARE HERS
AND MINE
JUST TO DO
WHAT WE WANT TO.
TONIGHT
WE'LL FIND A DUNE
THAT'S OURS
AND SOFTLY
SHE WILL SPEAK
THE STARS
UNTIL SUNUP.
IT'S ALL
FROM HAVIN'
SOMEONE,
KNOWIN'
JUST WHICH WAY
YOUR HEAD IS BLOWIN',
WHO'S ALWAYS WARM
LIKE THE MORNING
IN COCONUT GROVE.

Lyrics I HAD A DREAM
LAST NIGHT,
WHAT A LOVELY DREAM
IT WAS.
I DREAMED
WE ALL WERE ALL RIGHT,
HAPPY IN THE LAND OF OZ.
WHY DID EV'RYBODY LAUGH
WHEN I TOLD THEM MY DREAM?
I GUESS
THEY'RE ALWAYS
SO FAR
FROM THAT KIND OF SCENE:
FLEETING DREAMS.
I HEARD A SONG LAST NIGHT,
WHAT A LOVELY SONG IT WAS,
I THOUGHT I'D HUM IT
ALL NIGHT.
UNFORGETTABLE BECAUSE
ALL OF THE PLAYERS
WERE PLAYING TOGETHER,
AND ALL OF THE HEAVY'S
WERE LIGHT AS A FEATHER.
ALL I REMEMBER
IS A FEELING TOMORROW
AND AS I RECALL IT
THE REST
WILL JUST FOLLOW.

I HAD A DREAM
LAST NIGHT,
WHAT A LOVELY DREAM
IT WAS.
I DREAMED THE WORLD
WAS ALL RIGHT,
HAPPY IN THE LAND OF OZ.
