"All I Have to do is Dream" by The Everly Brothers

Rock and Roll

The song “All I have to do is Dream” by The Everly Brothers is one of those rockabilly favorites. The song was written by Boudleaux Bryant. He and his wife Felice Bryant were a famous songwriting team, who wrote successful songs for the Everly Brothers and other arts, including “Bye, Bye Love,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” “Bird Dog,” “Devoted to You,” and many more. “Dream, dream, dream, dream.” The record has the wonderful Phil and Don Everly close harmonies as well as Chet Atkins on guitar. In 1958, “All I Have to do is Dream” went to #1 on all of Billboard’s charts, including the Most played by Jockeys, Top 100, R&B, and Country. It also went to #1 on the U.K. Chart. The B-Side was “Claudette,” which was written by Roy Orbison and named for his wife.

Here are the lyrics for “All I Have to do is Dream” by The Everly Brothers:

“Dream, dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream

When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dream, dream, dream, dream

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dream

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I’m dreamin’ my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dream, dream, dream, dream, dream

I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I’m dreamin’ my life away

I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Dream, dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream, dream”
