Verse 1

Pray tell me how much longer must my poor heart suffer;
Though I'm no genius, still you know I'm not a duffer.
No one alive could measure up to your ideal man;
Why waste your time in dreams, when here you have a real man?

Refrain 1

Someday, someday you'll realize
Daydreams are gay dreams that seldom come true;
Someday, someday you'll realize
I am the lover who's slated for you.
Sleeping Beauty, wake from the spell of dreams-
True love you're abusing;
See the time we're losing!
Someday, someday you will realize
With a heart that's glad-
I'm not so bad.

Verse 2

Sir, you're a paragon-I know your ev'ry virtue;
And if you think you need me, I will not desert you.
True friendship is platonic, but if that won't do you,
Then only this remains-I'll be a sister to you.

Refrain 2

Someday, someday you'll realize
That I'm in love with a golden ideal.
Someday, someday you'll realize
Visions Elysian may seem to be real.
Find some blue-eyed nurse for your breaking heart;
Soon you'll get the feeling
It is quickly healing.
Someday, someday you will realize
No one else will do;
She's meant for you.
