Verse:
We meet at eve - ning time,  'Tis sweet at eve - ning time,
To know I'll spend an hour or two,  Just with you.
Then when the hour grows late;  I love to hes - i - tate,
The mo - ments seem so fleet - ing,  While I am here re - peat - ing.
 
Chorus:
Stars shin - ing bright a - bove you,  Night breez - es seem to whis - per,  "I love you,"
Birds sing - ing in the syc - a - more tree,  "Dream a lit - tle dream of Me."
Say "night -ie - night" and kiss me,  Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me;
While I'm a - lone and blue as can be,  Dream a lit - tle dream of me,
Stars fad - ing, but I lin - ger on, dear,  Still crav - ing your kiss;
I'm long - ing to lin - ger till dawn, dear,  Just say - ing this:
Sweet dreams till sun - beams find you,  Sweet dreams that leave all wor - ries be - hind you,
But in your dreams what - ev - er they be,  Dream a lit - tle dream of me.
