Lyrics verse 1:
MIDNIGHT,
YOU HEAVY LADEN,
IT'S MIDNIGHT.
COME ON
AND TRADE IN YOUR OLD DREAMS
FOR NEW,
YOUR NEW DREAMS
FOR OLD.
I KNOW WHERE THEY'RE BOUGHT,
I KNOW WHERE THEY'RE SOLD.
MIDNIGHT,
YOU'VE GOT TO GET THERE
AT MIDNIGHT,
AND YOU'LL BE MET THERE
BY OTHERS LIKE YOU,
BROTHERS AS BLUE,
SMILING
ON THE STREET OF DREAMS.

Chorus:
LOVE LAUGHS AT A KING,
KINGS DON'T MEAN A THING
ON THE STREET OF DREAMS.
DREAMS BROKEN IN TWO
CAN BE MADE LIKE NEW
ON THE STREET OF DREAMS.
GOLD, SILVER AND GOLD,
ALL YOU CAN HOLD
IS IN THE MOONBEAMS
POOR,
NO ONE IS POOR
LONG AS LOVE IS SURE
ON THE STREET OF DREAMS.

verse 2:
MIDNIGHT,
LOOK AT THE STEEPLE,
IT'S MIDNIGHT.
UNHAPPY PEOPLE,
IT'S RINGING WITH JOY,
IT'S RINGING WITH CHEER,
'CAUSE YESTERDAY'S GONE,
TOMORROW IS NEAR.
MIDNIGHT,
THE HEART IS LIGHTER
AT MIDNIGHT,
THINGS WILL BE BRIGHTER
THE MOMENT YOU FIND
MORE OF YOUR KIND,
SMILING ON THE STREET OF DREAMS.

Chorus
