TURN ON A DREAM
The Box Tops
We got to get together
Because all I want to do is think about you
Don't you know there's no other?
Just turn on a dream, girl
That's all I wanna do is dream, girl
Just think about you and me, yeah, and how it could be
Why can't you see?
What can I do?
You won't let me show you.
Don't you know that I know you?
When I'm down and my daytime's blue, I get by thinking of you
I close my eyes' I can see
I can feel' that it's real
I can turn out the sad, turn on the glad
Shifting sand like an hourglass,
Waiting for the time to pass
But I'll keep waiting like I always do,
Dreaming sunny dreams of you
