Is writing 'this is my dream job' in a cover letter a good idea?

What do you guys think of cover letters that say "this is my dream job"? How many of us have written such lies in every cover letter we've sent to every other company we've applied in? I don't know but you can write about why you like the work that the company does, but writing "this is my dream job" in a cover letter is too pretentious I feel.
