Dressed up in a gown that trails on the floor
In a picture hat that your mummy wore
Living in a world that you never saw
My little lady make-believe

What a pair of shoes for two tiny feet
What a pair of gloves, the fingers don't meet
Posing in a glass, your joy is complete
My little lady make-believe

In your little arms the doll you enfold
Means the world and all to you
But you could never love the doll that you hold
Half as much as I love you, my dear

Dream your little dreams, and may they come true
May the coming years bring happiness too
All my future dreams are wrapped up in you
My little lady make-believe
