Daydream Believer Lyrics

Artist: Anne Murray
Album: All of Me

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings of the bluebird as she *sleeps*
The six o'clock alarm would never ring
But it rings and we rise, wipe the sleep out of our eyes
The shavin' razor's cold and it stings

Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen?

I once thought of you as a white knight on a steed
Now you know how happy we can be
Oh, and our good times **started then
With a dollar one to spend**
But how much baby do we really need?


Brief instrumental interlude

CHORUS X 2 with FADE in middle of the second

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: * Anne definitely sings *sleep* whereas the Monkees sang "sings." Sheet music agrees with the Monkees but hers makes more sense. In that the second part of the verse is about waking up, one may infer that the first part is about being asleep. Who could sleep beneath a bird's wings as it SINGS?

The Monkees also sang **start and end WITHOUT dollar one to spend." I'm of two minds here: In that it likely means they were happy when they didn't have much money, WITHOUT makes lots of sense. On the other hand, "with a dollar one to spend" could be seen as having only $1.01. Sheet music agrees with the Monkees' "without."

Try using the late great John Stewart's words - he wrote the song!

I beg to differ. She says "sing", not sleep. Also she says "But it ring", not rings. You are correct on the with a dollar one to spend
