The first thing I thought of when I saw this Dreamy Theme was the following song from music halls of more than a century ago:
‘Waltz Me Around Again, Willie’ (1906), by Will Cobb and Ren Shields:
Willie Fitzgibbons who used to sell ribbons,
And stood up all day on his feet,
Grew very spooney on Madeline Mooney,
Who’d rather be dancing than eat.
Each evening she’d tag him, to some dance hall drag him,
And when the band started to play,
She’d up like a silly and grab tired Willie,
Steer him on the floor and she’d say:
‘Waltz me around again, Willie,
Around, around, around;
The music is dreamy, it’s peaches and creamy,
Oh! don’t let my feet touch the ground.
I feel just like a ship on an ocean of joy,
I just want to holler out loud “Ship Ahoy!”
Oh! waltz me around again, Willie,
Around, around, around.’
That reminded me of a very dreamy occasion in 2012, when we had our Golden Wedding Anniversary. Whether the waltz I wrote for the occasion was dreamy or not, those able to play the number I now have at the top of my sidebar player below the ‘Quests 4’ album can judge for themselves.
A challenge: who can work out why the opening bars are the way they are?
As for the words to it, they may be found here.
