“Daydream Believer” Lyrics

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 daydream believer
And a homecoming queen?

Well, 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 daydream believer
And a homecoming queen?

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

Davy: Alright, I’ll tell you what, let’s do it again together. We want everybody singing, okay? Everybody!

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?

Davy: Thanks a lot, everybody, thank you. Thank you very much.
Peter: Ha ha ha ha ha, thank you, thank you, thank you very much! And thanks to our [???] here too!
Davy: Alright!
Peter: So you’re ready for another, are ya?
Micky: You like me, you really, really like me!
Peter: Heh heh, well, some of them do.
