Letís Pretend

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing Along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

Letís pretend those clouds are islands in the sky.

And letís pretend weíre way up there, just you and I.

Letís pretend that no one knew where to find us in the blue.

Letís pretend this dream comes true as years roll by.Ē

 

On a quiet summer day long ago and far away,

Two tiny tots their happy play did end.

As they gazed into the sky where the lazy clouds go by,

The little girl said, ďLetís just play Ďpretendí.

 

Letís pretend those clouds are islands in the sky.

And letís pretend weíre way up there, just you and I.

Letís pretend that no one knew where to find us in the blue.

Letís pretend this dream comes true as years roll by.Ē

 

Now today, as swift years glide, do they wander side by side?

And does a trail into their dreamland wend?

Do they still recall the day that she turned to him to say,

ďDarling, take my hand and letís pretend.Ē

 

Letís pretend those clouds are islands in the sky.

And letís pretend weíre way up there, just you and I.

Letís pretend that no one knew where to find us in the blue.

Letís pretend this dream comes true as years roll by.Ē
