This song has been spinning in my head for days. The sweet melodious voice of Mama Cass. A slow contemplative song. The song was written by Fabian Andrea, Wilbur Schwandt, and Gus Kahn. Published 1931, the Mamas and the Papas’ version was recorded in 1968. I had forgotten how much I LOVE the Mamas and the Papas. I love songs I have grown up listening and the lyrics come back easily to me. Comforting but evocative. The lyrics of this song are well lyrical. Sunbeams. Sycamore tree. Stars fading. 

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 nighty-night and kiss me;
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me.
While I’m alone, 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.
