From the Paramount Production “Two for Tonight” with Bing Crosby and Joan Bennett.

Mm, Mm,
My heart’s unfurled about,
I’ve built my world about you.
Mm, Mm,
You’re all I’ve ambition for,
Here’s what I keep wishin’ for all thru the day.

CHORUS:
I WISH I WERE ALADDIN,
How lucky I would be,
I’d rub my little lamp
And wish that you would fall in love with me
I wish that I were Winkle
Who slept for twenty years,
Imagine twenty years to dream of you,
would that be heavenly!
If I could cast a magic spell when I feel blue,
I’d wave my wand and call for wonderful you.
But if I were certain
We’d never part,
I wouldn’t want to be Aladdin,
I wouldn’t want to be Rip Van Winkle,
Just want to be the only one in your heart.

I WISH I WERE ALADDIN
