Dear Jessie



Lyrics

Babyface don't grow so fast
Make a special wish that will always last
Rub this magic lantern
He will make your dreams come true
For you

Ride the rainbow to the other side
Catch a falling star and then take a ride
To the river that sings and the clover that
Brings good luck to you
It's all true

Pink elephants and lemonade
Dear Jessie hear the laughter
Running through the love parade
Candy kisses and a sunny day
Dear Jessie see the roses
Raining on the love parade

If the land of make believe
Is inside your heart it will never leave
There's a golden gate where the fairies all wait
And dancing moons
For you

Close your eyes and you'll be there
Where the mermaids sing as they comb their hair
Like a fountain of gold you can never grow old
Where dreams are made
Your love parade

Pink elephants and lemonade
Dear Jessie hear the laughter
Running through the love parade
Candy kisses and a sunny day
Dear Jessie see the roses
Raining on the love parade

Your dreams are made inside your love parade
It's a holiday inside your love parade

On the merry-go-round of
Lovers and white turtle doves
Leprechauns floating by
This is your lullaby
Sugarplum fingertips
Kissing your honey lips
Close your eyes sleepy head
Is it time for your bed
Never forget what I said
Hang on you're already there

Close your eyes and you'll be there
Where the mermaids sing as they comb their hair
Like a fountain of gold you can never grow old
Where dreams are made
Your love parade

Pink elephants and lemonade
Dear Jessie hear the laughter
Running through the love parade
Candy kisses and a sunny day
Dear Jessie see the roses
Raining on the love parade

Your dreams are made inside your love parade
It's a holiday inside your love parade
