The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke dear, I was mistaken

So I hung my head and cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

I'll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me and love another
You'll regret it all some day

You told me once dear, you’ll always love me
And no one could come between
But now you've left me to love another
You have shattered all my dreams

In all my dreams you seem to leave me

When I awake my poor heart pains

So won’t you come back and make me happy

I’ll forgive dear I’ll take all the blame
