I Dreamt I Dwelled in Marble Halls

   

Song lyrics to I Dreamt I Dwelled in Marble Halls (1844), from the opera “The Bohemian Girl”. Music by Michael William Balfe, Libretto by Alfred Bunn. Sung by Julie Bishop (dubbed by Rosina Lawrence), in the Laurel and Hardy film, The Bohemian Girl

I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls
With vassels and serfs at my side
And of all who assembled within those walls
That I was the hope and the pride

I had riches all too great to count
And a high ancestral name
But I also dreamt which pleased me most
That you loved me still the same
That you loved me
You loved me still the same
That you loved me
You loved me still the same

I dreamt that suitors sought my hand
That knights upon bended knee
And with vows no maiden’s heart could withstand
They pledged their faith to me

And I dreamt that one of that noble host
Came forth my hand to claim
But I also dreamt which charmed me most
That you loved me still the same
That you loved me
You loved me still the same
That you loved me
You loved me still the same
