    Lyrics

    Monk's Dream
    (as sung by Carmen McRae)

    I dreamed of a life that was pure and true.
    I dreamed of a job only I could do.
    One man beside me, we'd be a team,
    Man, that was a dream.

    I knew it was music I had to play,
    I dreamed when I played, I would play MY way.
    Too fast makin' children
    Boo-Boo and Toot,
    Dreams, that was a beaut.

    All through life, I'd be true,
    Fortune would come my way.
    Strugglin' n gettin ' by,
    Tryin' to never lie,
    Meaning exactly what I say

    I dreamed I had fame and a life sublime,
    I dreamed I made prints of the sands of time.
    Smack dab in the spotlight, bathed in it's beam,
    Man, that was my dream.

    (Solos)
    All through life, I'd be true,
    Fortune would come my way.
    Strugglin' n gettin ' by,
    Tryin' and never lie,
    Meaning exactly what I say

    I dreamed I had fame and a life sublime,
    I dreamed I made prints of the sands of time.
    Smack dab in the spotlight, makin' this wave,
    Man, that was my dream. Man, that was my dream.
    Man, that was my dream.
