“Daydream Believer” Lyrics

Davy: What number is this now?
Micky: Huh? This is 7A!
Davy: What, no, what number are we gonna do next?
Micky: 7A.
Peter: 7A!
Davy: Alright, alright, alright, I got it, I got it! I know. Don’t get excited. It’s because I’m short, that why.
Peter: Actually, that’s got nothing whatever to do with it.
Micky: [laughs]
Davy: Okay, three, four.

Oh, I could hide ‘neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings
The six o’clock alarm would never ring
But it 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, a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen?

You once thought of me
As a white knight on his steed
Well, now you know how happy I can be
And our good times start 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, a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen?

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

Davy: Alright, we’re gonna do it one more time with the help of Natural. And each and every one of you, we want you all to sing this time, here we go.

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

Davy: Everybody!

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

Davy: One more time.

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

Davy: Hey, we’d like to thank you all for being here, and all, our special guests, Natural, they’re the band of the future, okay, and you saw ’em right on the Monkees stage. We’re out. Thank you guys.
