  • Daydream Believer
  • Anne Murray
  • Words and Music by John Stewart
  • Peaked at #12 in 1980
  • Previously a # 1 for The Monkees in 1967
  • 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
  • CHORUS
  • 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?
  • CHORUS
  • 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."
