I bet you all the money in my pockets
That I have a dollar and a dream
The dream might cost me two
So I'm begging you
To dream with me so I can dream a dream

My fingers on the fencepost going tap tap tap......
And I told you about the suffering in the street
I gave your string of pearls to some rabid little girls
In hopes tonight that I might dream their dream

Diamond Joe is sweeping out the alley
He's always whistling tunes and tempting me
With whiskey and a smoke
And I never understand his jokes
But his punch lines all come to me in my dream

And I'd bet you all the pigeons in my city
And I'd bet you the shoes upon my feet
That if it rains tonight
I will fall from the sky
And I may finally get to dream a dream
