Verse:
When the world goes wrong, as it's bound to do,
And you've brok - en Dan Cu - pid's bow,
And you long for the girl you used to love,
The maid of the long a - go.
Why light your pipe, Bid sor - row a - vaunt,
Blow the smoke from your al - tar of dreams,
And wreathe the face of your dream girl there,
The love that is just what it seems.
 
Chorus:
The girl of my dreams is the sweet - est girl,
Of all the girls I know.
Each sweet co - ed like a rain - bow trail,
Fades in the af - ter glow.
The blue of her eyes and the gold of her hair,
Are a blend of the west - ern sky.
And the moon - light beams on the girl of my dreams,
She's the Sweet - heart of Sig - ma Chi.
