“Daydream Believer” Lyrics

Chip: 7A.
Davy: What number is this, Chip?
All: 7A!
Davy: Okay, don’t mean it, don’t get excited, man. It’s ’cause I’m short, I know.

Oh, I could hide ’neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings
The six o’clock alarm would never ring
But six rings, and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shaving razor’s 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
Whoa, and our good times starts and end
Without 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?

[break]

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?…

“D.W. Washburn” Lyrics

D.W. Washburn, I heard a sweet voice say
D.W. Washburn, this is your lucky day
A hot bowl of soup is waitin’
A hot bowl of soup and a shave
D.W. Washburn, we picked you to save

Can’t you hear the flugel horn?
Can’t you hear the bell?
Even you can be reborn
You naughty n’er-do-well
If you don’t get outta that gutter
Before the next big rain
D.W. Washburn, you’re gonna wash right down the drain

Up, up, c’mon, get up
Get up off your street
If you can only make it from your hands to your knees
I know you can make it to your feet, whoa!

D.W. Washburn, I said to myself
D.W. Washburn, why don’t you go save somebody else?
Well, I got no job to go to
I don’t work and I don’t get paid
I got a bottle of wine
I’m feelin’ fine
And I believe I got it made

I’d like to thank all you good people
For coming to my aid
But I’m D.W. Washburn
I do believe I got it made
I do believe I got it made
Don’t need nobody
I do believe I got it made, ah huh
I do believe I got it made, one more time
I do, do, do, do, do believe I got it made

“Tapioca Tundra” Lyrics

“One, two, three, four, five
Four, eight, two, one, zero, eleven…”

Reasoned verse, some prose or rhyme
Lose themselves in other times
And waiting hopes cast silent spells
That speak in clouded clues
It cannot be a part of me for now it’s part of you

Careful plays on fields that seem to vanish
When they’re in between
And softly, as I walk away
In freshly tattered shoes
It cannot be a part of me for now it’s part of you

Sunshine, ragtime
Blowing in the breeze
Midnight looks right
Standing more at ease

Silhouettes and figures stay
Close to what he had to say
And one more time, the faded dream
Is saddened by the news
It cannot be a part of me for now it’s part of you

Well, sunshine, ragtime
Blowing in the breeze
Midnight looks right
Standing more at ease

[break]

Sunshine, ragtime
Blowing in the breeze
Midnight looks right
Standing more at ease

Silhouettes and figures stay
Close to what he had to say
And one more time, the faded dream
Is saddened by the news
It cannot be a part of me for now it’s part of you
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh

“Words” Lyrics

Girl, don’t you know every time I see you smilin’
(It hurts so bad ’cause when I see you, I start tryin’)
I’ve tried everything to stop, but there’s no denyin’
(That fallin’ in love with you, girl, is just like dyin’)

Oh, don’t walk away
How, how can I make you stay?
Don’t turn away

I can still hear you sayin’ those
Words that never were true
Spoken to help
Nobody but you
Words with lies inside
But small enough to hide
’Til your playin’ was through, ah

Girl, don’t you know we can work it out with talkin’?
(You won’t turn around or slow down your walkin’)
I’ve given you everything with a kiss to seal it
(You had to get your kicks outta tryin’ to steal it)

Now I’m standing here
Strange, strange voices in my ears
I feel the tears

But all I can hear are those
Words that never were true
Spoken to help
Nobody but you
Words with lies inside
But small enough to hide
’Til your playin’ was through, ah

[break]

Now I’m standing here
Strange, strange voices in my ears
I feel the tears

But all I can hear are those
Words that never were true
Spoken to help
Nobody but you
Words with lies inside
But small enough to hide
’Til your playin’ was through

Words that never were true
Spoken to help
Nobody but you
Words with lies inside
But small enough to hide
’Til your playin’ was through

“Pleasant Valley Sunday” Lyrics

The local rock group down the street
Is trying hard to learn their song
They serenade the weekend squire
Who just came out to mow his lawn

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
Charcoal burnin’ everywhere
Rows of houses that are all the same
And no one seems to care

See Mrs. Gray, she’s proud today
Because her roses are in bloom
And Mr. Green, he’s so serene
He’s got a T.V. in every room

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
Here in status symbol land
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids just don’t understand

Creature comfort goals
They only numb my soul
And make it hard for me to see (Ahh)
My thoughts all seem to stray
To places far away
I need a change of scenery

Ta ta-ta ta, ta ta-ta ta
Ta ta-ta ta, ta ta-ta taa
Ta ta-ta ta, ta ta-ta ta
Ta ta-ta ta, ta ta-ta taa

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
Charcoal burnin’ everywhere
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday)
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday)
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday)
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday)
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday)
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday)

“Valleri” Lyrics

Valleri
I love her
Valleri

There’s a girl I know
Who makes me feel so good
And I wouldn’t live without her
Even if I could

They call her Valleri
I love her
Valleri

Oh yeah
Come on
Wow!

[break]

She’s the same little girl who used to
Hang around my door
But she sure looks different than
The way she looked before

I call her Valleri
I love her
Valleri

Valleri
I love her

I love her
Valleri
I need her

“It’s Nice To Be With You” Lyrics

Hey, look what you have done
Showing me the sun
And now it’s shining though
It’s nice to be with you

Hey, I like the things you say
And I like the way
You do the things you do
It’s nice to be with you

Each time that I give my heart to someone new
They just turn it blue
But this time is my time
And my time is all the time I have to be with you

So please, never go away
Say you’re going to stay
And make my dreams come true
It’s nice to be with you

Each time that I give my heart to someone new
They just turn it blue
But this time is my time
And my time is all the time I have to be with you

So please, never go away
Say you’re going to stay
And make my dreams come true
It’s so nice to be with you

“Good Clean Fun” Lyrics

There’s a smile on the wind as it touches my face
And starts to erase all the gloom
And the sun with a kiss begins to dismiss
The memory of my life without you

Well, it seems like yesterday that my path took me away
Although I know it’s been at least a year
But now my path heads home, and your patient time alone
Has brought me even closer to you, dear

And this plane gets closer
Every minute, I look down to a watch that keeps lookin’ back at me
And it says to me, “Be patient, son, you’ve waited this long”
But how can I be strong?

[break]

And this plane gets closer
Every minute, I look down to a watch that keeps lookin’ back at me
And it says to me, “Be patient, son, you’ve waited this long”
But how can I be strong?

Well, the plane is finally down, and the engines stopped their sound
I look in the crowd, and there you stand
And the gap that once was time is forever closed behind
’Cause I told you I’d come back, and here I am
Yes, I told you I’d come back, and here I am
I told you I’d come back, and here I am

“Oh My My” Lyrics

Oh my my, I could love you forever
Oh my my, I only wish that I could
Oh my my, I could love you forever
Oh my my, girl, you feel so good

You, you make my heart sing
You make my life worthwhile
Life is such there’s so much to discover
To uncover it is gonna take a while

Oh my my, I could love you forever
Oh my my, I only wish that I could
Oh my my, I could love you forever
Oh my my, girl, you feel so good

I think of us together
It takes my breath away
Up to the sky I go flying
“Oh my my” is all I can say, hey hey

Oh my my
Oh my my, my my
Oh my m-my m-my my
Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my my-my-my-my-my

You, you make my heart sing
You make my life worthwhile
Life is such there’s so much to discover
To uncover it, it’s gonna take a while

Oh my my, I could love you forever
Oh my my, I only wish that I could
Oh my my, I could love you forever

Oh my my, I could love you forever
Oh my my, I only wish that I could

Oh, girl, you feel so good

Oh my my, I could love you forever…

“You Can’t Tie A Mustang Down” Lyrics

I’m a young man, baby
And a young man I must be
I’ve got to live young, baby
And love young, baby
To see what I can see

So remember
That you can’t tie a mustang down
No, you can’t tie a mustang down
And you can’t keep an ocean in a cup
Whoa, no, you can’t tie a mustang down
Or up

Now I only got one heart, baby
And I’m gonna keep it here
Oh, by the way that I hold you
You might think I love you
But I never said I did

So don’t impose your will upon me
I can’t stand the sound of chains
Whoa, don’t try to tame me
Or blame me or name me
Oh baby, ease up on the reins

And remember
That you can’t (No, you can’t) tie a mustang down (No, you can’t)
No, you can’t tie a mustang down
No, you can’t put an ocean in a cup
Whoa, no, you can’t tie a mustang down
Or up

Now I’m a young man, baby
And a young man I must be
I’ve got to live young, baby
And love young, baby
And see what I can see

So remember
That you can’t tie a mustang down
No, you can’t tie a mustang down
Oh, you can’t keep an ocean in a cup
Whoa, no, you can’t tie a mustang down
Or up
Oh no, you can’t tie a mustang down
You can’t tie a mustang down
You can’t keep an ocean in a cup
Oh no, you can’t tie a mustang down
Or up
