“Dream A Little Dream Of Me”(1)

 

 

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper I love you
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Say night-ie night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on, dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

 

SOGNAMI UN POCHINO

Le stelle risplendono lucenti su di te
Le brezze notturne sembrano sussurrare “Ti amo”
Gli uccelli cantano sui sicomori /platani
Fa’ un piccolo sogno su di me

Dì buonanotte e baciami
Solo tienimi stretta e dimmi che ti mancherò
Mentre sarò sola e triste più che mai
Fa’ un piccolo sogno su di me

Le stelle stanno scomparendo ma io indugio, caro
Desiderando ancora un tuo bacio
Ho voglia di attardarmi fino all’alba, caro
Semplicemente dicendo questo

Fa’ dolci sogni finché i raggi del sole non ti troveranno
Dolci sogni che ti lasciano tutte preoccupazioni dietro di te
Ma nei tuoi sogni, qualsiasi essi siano
Fa’ un piccolo sogno su di me.

(L.Z.)
