Little lady of my dreams,
Since the day we met,
Ev'ry other girly seems
Easy to forget.
On this heart of mine
I have placed a sign:
"No room to let."
With your sweet and winning smiles
Any your tender eyes,
You have brought me miles and miles
Nearer paradise.
Ev'ry joy I know
Here on earth below,
I know I owe to you, dear~


Dolly, Dolly, sad or gay,
There is something charming about you;
Something sweet that seems to say
Life would be empty for me without you.
Dolly, Dolly, when you're near,
Clouds and shadows all disappear,
And the stars above you
Spell the words "I love you,
Dolly, Dolly dear."

Verse 2

All the songbirds night and day
Set my heart aflame
As your wondrous beauty they
Merrily proclaim.
Ev'ry gentle breeze
Floating through the trees
Whispers your name.
All the flowers that I see
Wear their fairest hue.
That's their way of telling me
Dreams have all come true.
And the lovely theme
Of each lovely dream,
Darling, is you, just you, oh~

Repeat Refrain
