I'm in Dreamsville, holding you;
A dreamy view, just we two
Alone with love in Dreamsville, time is new;
We're here to love and we do.

We can see the rest of the world
Below us from our pink cloud.
There's no boundary to this magic land.

As we go exploring hand in hand
In Dreamy Dreamsville,
Far away, and here we love
Here we'll stay

As we go exploring hand in hand
In Dreamy Dreamsville,
Far away, and here we love
Here we'll stay.
DREAMSVILLE From the television production Peter Gunn, Northridge Music, Inc., 1959. Words by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston, Music by Henry Mancini (Special Picture Release)
