Lyrics

Lyrics:
Garden Of My DreamsDown beside the seashore In a little teastore Was a little Japanee bowl. Tiny little bridges Cherry trees and ridges Just a little garden whole. Truly I admired it And I soon acquired it, And I called it Garden of Dreams! Cause each little figure In my mind grew bigger Until they were real, it seems.
Refrain
Garden of my dreams In Tokio Paradise it seems You make it so. Little Lotus flow'r My only; Blossom ev'ry hour I'm lonely, Let me hold you let me fold you in my arms, dear, There is in your caress A world of happiness Deep down in my heart I love you so. We will never part One thing I know, Dear, you are my all, I've found you I will build a wall around you Garden of my dreams In Tokio. Garden of my dreams In Tokio Paradise it seems You make it so. Little Lotus flow'r My only; Blossom ev'ry hour I'm lonely, Let me hold you let me fold you in my arms, dear, There is in your caress A world of happiness Deep down in my heart I love you so. We will never part One thing I know, Dear, you are my all, I've found you I will build a wall around you Garden of my dreams In Tokio.

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
