  • Baby face don't grow so fast
    Make a special wish that will always last
    Rub this magic lantern
    He will make your dreams come true for you

    Ride the rainbow to the other side
    Catch a falling star and then take a ride
    To the river that sings and the clover that
    Brings good luck to you, it's all true

    Pink elephants and lemonade, dear Jessie
    Hear the laughter running through the love parade
    Candy kisses and a sunny day, dear Jessie
    See the roses raining on the love parade

    If the land of make believe
    Is inside your heart it will never leave
    There's a golden gate where the fairies all wait
    And dancing moons, for you

    Close your eyes and you'll be there
    Where the mermaids sing as they comb their hair
    Like a fountain of gold you can never grow old
    Where dreams are made, your love parade

    Pink elephants and lemonade, dear Jessie
    Hear the laughter running through the love parade
    Candy kisses and a sunny day, dear Jessie
    See the roses raining on the love parade

    Your dreams are made inside the love parade
    It's a holiday inside the love parade

    On the merry-go-round of lovers and white turtle doves
    Leprechauns floating by, this is your lullaby
    Sugarplum fingertips kissing your honey lips
    Close your eyes sleepy head, is it time for your bed
    Never forget what I said, hang on you're already there

    Close your eyes and you'll be there
    Where the mermaids sing as they comb their hair
    Like a fountain of gold you can never grow old
    Where dreams are made, your love parade

    Pink elephants and lemonade, dear Jessie
    Hear the laughter running through the love parade
    Candy kisses and a sunny day, dear Jessie
    See the roses raining on the love parade Writer/s: Madonna Louise Ciccone, Patrick Leonard

  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdDear Jessie-brilliant psychedelic/orchestral ballad about Lola's older spiritual sister!
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnProbably the only song that doesn't fit Madonna but that's a good thing.
  • Sum Sum from New Delhisounds like a nursery rhyme..they also play it in the club...no remix.. i mean the real original version. sounds good there also..
