This song is in 3/4 time.
I'm dreaming dreams, I'm scheming schemes,
I'm building castles high,
They're born anew, their days are few,
Just like a sweet butter fly.
And as the daylight is dawning,
They come again in the morning.
I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high, nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams they fade and die.
Fortune's always hiding,
I've looked ev'rywhere,
I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.
