Mister Sandman
Vaughn Monroe Lyrics


Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him two lips like roses in clover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over

Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam

Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over

Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam

Give him a pair of eyes with a congeal of gleam
Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci
And lots of wavy hair like Liberace

Mister Sandman, someone to hold
Would be so peachy before we're too old
So please turn on your magic beam
Mister Sandman, bring us a dream

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make her complexion like peaches and cream
Give her two lips like roses and clover
Then tell me that my lonesome nights are over
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make her complexion like peaches and cream
Give her two lips like roses and clover
Then tell me that my lonesome nights are over
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

Undistinguished arrangement? Fanstastic arrangement, would I say. Thank you for sharing this very first recording of this beautiful song.

If you're replying to the video description, he's saying it's not a distinctive arrangement - which it's not. It's absolutely standard. It's great, but it doesn't do anything new. That's why it's amazing that this B-side inspired the Chordette's groundbreaking version which was an utter transformation of the song that had a tremendous impact on popular music and culture.

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make her complexion like peaches and cream
Give her two lips like roses and clover
Then tell me that my lonesome nights are over
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make her complexion like peaches and cream
Give her two lips like roses and clover
Then tell me that my lonesome nights are over
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
