This song is in 3/4 time.
I'm dream -ing dreams, I'm schem -ing schemes,
I'm build -ing cas -tles high,
They're born a -new, their days are few,
Just like a sweet but -ter fly.
And as the day -light is dawn -ing,
They come a -gain in the morn -ing.
I'm For -ev -er Blow -ing Bub -bles,
Pret -ty bub -les in the air,
They fly so high, near -ly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams they fade and die.
For -tune's al -ways hid -ing,
I've looked ev -'ry -where,
I'm For -ev -er Blow -ing Bub -bles,
Pret -ty bub -bles in the air.
Arranged by Jim Bottorff
