Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream

Words and music by Ed McCurdy

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I'd ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.
I dreamed I saw a mighty room,
Filled with women and men
And the paper they were signing said
They'd never fight again.

And when the paper was all signed,
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads,
And grateful prayers were made
And the people in the streets below,
Were dancing round and round
While swords and guns and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground.

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I'd ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war
