G7    Cmaj7  Cmaj7/6	  B7
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream;

E7	                    A7+5      A7
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen.

D7                     G7
Give him two lips like roses in clover,

C      C/B	      Am7      Am7/G	  Fdim(III)    G
  And tell him that his lonesome nights are over.


Cmaj7    Cmaj7/6     B7
Sandman, I'm so      alone,

  E7	                A7+5    A7
Don't have nobody to call my own;

  Dm        Dm7	         Fdim(I)
Please turn on your magic beam;

      C  C/B   D9    G7   C 		 
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.


(Instrumental Interlude:)

Cmaj7                              Cmaj7/6    B7
Mr. Sandman (male voice: "Yesss?") bring me a dream 

E7	                           A7+5           A7
Give him a pair of eyes with a "come-hither" gleam

D7                             G7
Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci 

C    C/B	  Am7  Am7/G	Fdim(III)     G
And lots of wavy hair like  Li - ber - a - ce

       Cmaj7  Cmaj7/6    B7
Mr Sandman, someone to hold 

E7	                A7+5          A7
Would be so peachy before I'me too old;

     Dm        Dm7	         Fdim(I)
So please turn on your magic beam,

     C  C/B  Am7	Am7/G   C 	  E7     A7+5 
Mr. Sandman bring me,     please, please, please,

     C  C/B   D9      G7   C
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.
