Ripple Down Dreams

I heard this song
And it sounded familiar;
It sounded so familiar
And I wondered why?

The Radio guy
Said they called it “Ripple”;
The name was “Ripple”
And Grateful Dead wrote it all.

Or so they said,
Jerry Garcia did the melody;
A sweet melody
Began to play in my head.

It played so clearly,
“Any Dream Will Do”;
“Any Dream Will Do”
Played in my head.

Not “Ripple” I heard,
But Andrew Lloyd Webber.
So who wrote what?
And it rippled on
Any dream will do.
