“Daydream Believer” Lyrics

I could hide ‘neath the wings
Of a 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?

You once thought of me
As a white knight on his steed
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?

Micky: Okay, you know what’s coming. It’s your turn now. Here we go. One, two, three!

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

Micky: Everybody, skate backwards!

(Cheer up, Sleepy Jean) (Hey!)
(Oh, what can it mean) (Listen up!)
(To a daydream believer)
(And a homecoming queen?)

Micky: Well done!

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