Alvin, the chipmunk
Any Dream WIll Do
from the musical "Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"
I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain what I thought I knew.
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping; Any dream will do.
I wore my coat, with golden lining,
Bright colors shining, wonderful and new.
And in the East, the dawn was breaking
(And) the world was waking; Any dream will do.
[A crash of drums! A flash of light!
My golden coat flew outta sight!
The colors faded into darkness, I was left alone...
May I return to the beginning?
The light is dimming, and the dream is too.
The world and I, we are still waiting,
Still hesitating, [Any dream will do...]]
