Lyrics
Only a dream that I
Had in the night
Only a dream but
Felt so right

We were standing in the moonlight
Holding you tight but it was only a dream

Only a dream
Knocked me off of my feet
Down in New Orleans we were dancing in the street

And the big band kept on playing
Bonaparte's retreat
But it was only a dream

Only a dream
But somebody
Tried to shoot it down
Shoot it down

Only a dream
But that dream
Keeps hanging around

It was only a dream
We were roiling in the snow
Only a dream
And we just couldn't let go

I stood outside the window
Felt like Romeo
But it was only a dream

Only a dream
But somebody
But somebody
Tried to shoot it down
Shoot it down
Only a dream
But that dream
Is still around

Up on mockingbird and nobody is feeling no pain
Birds are singing their all so sweet refrain

If I had to do it all over
I'd do the same thing again
It was only a dream

Only a dream
Knocked me off of my feet

Down in New Orleans
We were dancing in the street

And the big band kept on swinging
Bonaparte's retreat
Only a dream

Bonaparte's retreat
Bonaparte's retreat
Bonaparte's retreat
