Day Dream Lyrics

Artist: Lovin' Spoonful

The Wallace Collection
Notes : Also performed by "Lovin' Spoonful"

What a day for a day dream,
What a day for a day dreamin' boy.
And I'm lost in a day dream,
Dreamin' 'bout my bundle of joy.
And even if time ain't really on my side,
It's one of those days for taking a walk outside.
I'm blowing the day to take a walk in the sun,
And fall on my face in somebody's new mowed lawn.

I've been havin' a sweet dream,
I've been dreamin' since I woke up today,
It's starring me in my sweet dream,
'Cause she's the one that makes me feel this way,
And even if time is passin' me by a lot,
I couldn't care less about the dues you say I got.
Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load.
A pie in the face for being a sleepy bull toad.

And you can be sure that if you're feelin right
A day dream will last a long time into the night.
Tomorrow at breakfast you may prick up your ears,
Or you may be dreamin' for a thousand years.

The correct line is " A pie in the face for bein' asleep before dawn". Also, there is another chorus at the end of the song.

More corrections...

"A day dream will follow on into the night"

"Or you may be dreamin' for the next few years"

I grewup listening to my dad and his best friend on acoustic guitar playing this song , and some mamas and papas, and king of the road. I was about 12. im 52 now. i miss him and i wish i had taped it, but who thinks of that stuff at the moment? I have a great memory in my head.

first "correction" is incorrect;
the lyric as Sebastion sings it AND as it is published in sheet music is "a pie in the face for being a sleepy bull toad'

One of the first tapes I remember my daddy gettin' me was these guys. I learned every song on it from Daydream to Nashville cats.

We used to sing it when I road in the back of our old pick-up (his first, then my first car) and I couldn't have been maybe 7...

20yrs later, this song still brings a tear to my eyes and a smile as I sting it because I can picture my dad singing it right next to me.

And just like he did, I plan to teach my son to sing the same way, to good music.
