"Polka Dots And Moonbeams" lyrics - BOB DYLAN

"Polka Dots And Moonbeams"
(Jimmy Van Heusen, Johnny Burke)

A country dance was being held in a garden
I felt a bump and heard an, "Oh, beg your pardon"

Suddenly, I saw polka dots and moonbeams
All around a pug-nosed dream

The music started and was I the perplexed one
I held my breath and said, "May I have the next one?"

In my frightened arms, polka dots and moonbeams
Sparkled on a pug-nosed dream

There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we floated over the floor
There were questions but my heart knew all the answers
And perhaps a few things more

Now in a cottage built of lilacs and laughter
I know the meaning of the words, "Ever after"

And I'll always see polka dots and moonbeams
When I kiss the pug-nosed dream
