DREAMLAND

Канадская фолк-рок-исполнительница



It's a long, long way from Canada

A long way from snow chains

Donkey vendors slicing coconut

No parkas to their name

Black babies covered in baking flour

The cook's got a carnival song

We're going to lay down someplace shady

With dreamland coming on

Dreamland, dreamland

Dreamland, dreamland



Walter Raleigh and Chris Columbus

Come marching out of the waves

And claim the beach and all concessions

In the name of the suntan slave

I wrapped that flag around me

Like a Dorothy Lamour sarong

And I lay down thinking national

With dreamland coming on

Dreamland, dreamland

Dreamland, dreamland



Goodtime Mary and a fortune hunter

All dressed up to follow the drums

Mary in a feather hula-hoop

Miss Fortune with a rose on her big game gun

All saints, all sinners shining

Heed those trumpets all night long

Propped up on a samba beat

With dreamland coming on

Dreamland, dreamland

Dreamland, dreamland



Tar baby and the Great White Wonder

Talking over a glass of rum

Burning on the inside

With the knowledge of things to come

There's gambling out on the terrace

And midnight ramblin' on the lawn

As they lead toward temptation

With dreamland coming on

Dreamland, dreamland

Dreamland, dreamland



In a plane flying back to winter

In shoes full of tropic sand

A lady in a foreign flag

On the arm of her Marlboro Man

The hawk howls in New York City

Six foot drifts on Myrtle's lawn

As they push the recline buttons down

With dreamland coming on

Dreamland, dreamland

Dreamland, dreamland



La, La ...

African sand on the trade winds

And the sun on the Amazon

As they push the reline buttons down

With dreamland coming on

Dreamland, dreamland

Dreamland, dreamland
