“Daydream Believer” (Millienium version 2001) Lyrics

[Daydream, daydream believer]
[Cheer up, come on, cheer up, cheer up]
[Here we go]

Daydream believer
[Daydream believer]
[Cheer up, cheer up]
[Cheer up, come on now]

Daydream believer

(Cheer up, cheer up)
Daydream believer

Oh, I could hide ‘neath the wings
Of a bluebird as she sings (Ooh yeah)
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, cheer up]
[Daydream believer]
Daydream believer (Cheer up, cheer up)
[Are you ready?]
Daydream believer (Cheer up, cheer up)

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

[Cheer up, cheer up]
(Cheer up, cheer up)
[Cheer up, cheer up]
Daydream believer
[Sleepy Jean]
[Daydream, daydream, daydream, believer] (Ow!)
Daydream believer

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, cheer up)

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

[Daydream believer]
[Cheer up, Sleepy Jean]
[Oh, what can it mean]
Daydream believer
[To a daydream believer] (Ohh)
[You once thought of me]
[As a white knight on his steed]
[Now you know, now you know how happy I can be]
Daydream believer
[So cheer up, cheer up, come on, yeah] (Ooh yeah)
[Daydream believer] (Yeah yeah)
[Cheer up, cheer up]
[Cheer up Sleepy Jean] (Ooh yeah)
[Come on, daydream, daydream] (Ooh yeah)
[Daydream believer]
[Yeah, cheer up]
[Cheer up]

Cheer up, Sleepy Jean
[Break it down]
[Break it down now]
[Break it down, come on]
[Cheer up]
Daydream believer
[Cheer up Sleepy Jean]
Daydream believer
[Come on]
[Daydream believer]
Daydream believer
[Yeah]
[Cheer up]
[Cheer up Sleepy Jean]
(Cheer up, cheer up)

[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]
Daydream believer (Cheer up, cheer up)
[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]

[Cheer up Sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean]
Daydream believer (Cheer up, cheer up)
[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]

[Cheer up Sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean]
Daydream believer (Cheer up, cheer up)
[To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen]
