AM7            C#m7(IV)      G#7
Climb aboard a butterfly and take off in the breeze,

C#7                             F#7            
Let your worries flutter by and do the things you please,

D               Dm7                A                F#7
In the land where dollar bills are falling off the trees,

D             Dm6    E7
On a dreamer's hol-i-day.

AM7          C#m7(IV)              G#7
Ev'ry day for breakfast, there's a dish of scrambled stars,

C#7                                   F#7
And for luncheon, you'll be munchin' rainbow candy bars; 

D              Dm7(V) Fdim     A            F#7
You'll be livin' a-la-mode on Jupiter and Mars

D              E7     D9  - BbM7 - A
On a dreamer's hol-i-day.


 Bm7      E7     A     F#m    Bm7          E7     A     A7
Make it a long vacation;     time there is plenty of.

   C#m7     F#7    B7           D             D6      E7
You need no res-er-va-tion -- just bring the one you love.

AM7             C#m7(IV)        G#7
Help yourself to happiness and sprinkle it with mirth,

C#7                                  F#7
Close your eyes and concentrate and dream for all you're worth;

D                Dm7(V)  Fdim      A      Fdim(III) F#7
You will feel ter-rif-ic when you get back down to earth

D                E7  A
From a dreamer's holiday.
