“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, 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: Hey, do it one more time, we want everybody singing, get in the mood to win money, okay, we’re going out there.

Cheer up, Sleepy Jean (Come on!)
Oh, what can it mean (Come on, Sally, you can do it)
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen?

Davy: Alright, by Job, they’ve done it!

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

Davy: Thanks a lot everybody. Have a great night. If I’ve offended anybody, I don’t care. ’Cause you can’t catch me! Actually, you know, actually, I’m not finished yet. Because, no, really, honestly. Alright.
