"Dream of a Child" as written by and David Jesse Forman....
When I was a boy I dreamed of Phillip Marlowe
He took me as his partner took me as his friend
Gave me his fedora gave me shotgun fever
Took me as his partner to the end

When I was a boy I dreamed I was a jeweler
With a family business that was free and clear
Selling golden earrings to Mrs Mickey Mantle
Trying to be gentle while I stuck it in her ear

The dream of a child, the song of a man
The key and the time are at his command
The dream of a child the song of a man
The key and the time are at his command

When I was a boy I dreamed I saved my sister
From the Rosicrucians for the love of God
I threw myself among them slaughtering their numbers
Striking at their laughter crying so hard

The dream of a child the song of a man
The key and the time are at this command
The dream of a child the song of a man
The key and the time are at his command

When I was a boy I dreamed that Elvis Presley
Was standing on the corner kissing Brenda Lee
Mama always told me love was made in Heaven
Tell me how my best friend could steal my love from me
I love Brenda Lee - Brenda Lee loves me
