"A Kiss To Build A Dream On" as written by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby and Oscar Hammerstein....
Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

Give me a kiss before you leave me
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart
Leave me one thing before we part
A kiss to build a dream on

And when I'm alone with my fancies, I'll be with you
Weaving romances, making believe they're true

Oh, give me your lips for just a moment
And my imagination will make that moment live
Give me what you alone can give
A kiss to build a dream on

When I'm alone with my fancies, I'll be with you
Weaving romances, making believe they're true

Oh, give me lips for just a moment
And my imagination will make that moment live
Oh, give me what you alone can give
A kiss to build a dream on

    General Commentthis is one of Armstrong's finest songs - it really is. this is about adoring someone so much that all you need is one kiss, and you're good.

    General CommentI may be into metal and hard music but I love this stuff too. Louie Armstrong really does have amazing music, I first heard this off of a game (believe it or not) and I was into that kind of music and I asked a fellow music fan who it was and they pointed me Louie's way and I'm now addicted to this music.

    Care free music, free flowing, good sound, I saw a quote on a fan website"what we play is life". After listening I can see what they mean.

    General Commenti think this song is about someone leaving him, and all he wants is one more kiss to hold him over.

    General CommentHaha, Fallout II made me love this song. It was a great soundtrack for one of the best games ever made. I loved Fallout 1 opening soundtrack as well.

    General CommentAdmittedly, Fallout II was the first place I heard this song, but that doesn't make it any less special. That game really made me get into Satchmo, making that game just a little more special to me.
