Anne Murray - Daydream Believer LyricsDaydream 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."
