Daydream Believer

Oh I could hide beneath the wings
Of a bluebird as she sings
The six o’clock alarm would never ring

Oh but it rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shaving razors cold and it stings

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh what can it mean?
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen

You once thought of me
As a white knight on his steed
Now you know how happy I can be

Oh and our good times start and end
Without a dollar one to spend
But how much baby do we really need?

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen
