I could build a fortune
build a palace on the sea
and every bright morning would belong to you and me
we could lay awake at night
and hear the oceans move
what a terrible dream, what a wonderful dream

i could raise a fighting dog
the best that's ever been
if he fought a lion
we'd put our bets on in
we can set a ring inside
and hear his final scream
what a terrible dream, what a wonderful dream

Oh the frontiers are nearly gone
Still my wild dreams linger on
Oh the frontiers are always moving on
So swiftly towards the west, out to the ocean's crest
what a terrible death, what a wonderful death

I could build a movie theatre
lining with velvet aisles
all would sit and watch the scarlet smile
we could watch the ball drop
and welcome another year
what a terrible fear, what a wonderful fear

Oh the frontiers are nearly gone
Still my wild dreams linger on
Oh the frontiers are always moving on
So swiftly towards the west, out the ocean's crest
What a terrible death, what a wonderful death

Sha la la la
Sha la la la la
Sha la la la la
Sha la la la la

What a terrible dream
What a wonderful dream
