The Four Aces - Mr. Sandman (1954)

Formed in 1950 by Al Alberts, this vocal group reached the top ten on ten different occasions. When they couldn’t find a record company to release their first single, “(It’s No) Sin” in 1951, Alberts started his own record company, Victoria Records, to release the song. It sold one million copies and the group was quickly signed by Decca Records.

This song was a hit for the group in November 1954. It was written by Pat Ballard earlier that year and often had the lyrics substituted between “he” and “she” depending on what group was performing the song. This group’s rendition of the song was featured in Back to the Future.

Lyrics:

(Mr. Sandman)
(Mr. Sandman)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make her complexion like peaches and cream
Give her two lips like roses and clover
Then tell me that my lonesome nights are over

Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make her the cutest that I've ever seen
Give her the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell her that my lonesome nights are over

Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

(Mr. Sandman)
(Mr. Sandman)
(Mr. Sandman, Sandman, Sandman, Sandman)

Please Mr. Sandman, won't you bless me with a dream?
Make her complexion just like peaches mixed with cream
Give her two lips that look like roses and clover
Then tell me that my lonesome nights are over

Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me-
Please, please bring me a dream

(Mr. Sandman)
(Sandman)
