Here's the half-finished painting
Of a girl that I started last December
Here's the first three pages of my novel 'bout
I don't really remember
Here's my Martin guitar that I never quite learned how to play.
That's the daylight dreamer, wishful thinker's way

I had a Harley bike, but I traded it off to a fella
For the Astroglass boat that's still sittin down in my cellar
I bought a tape recorder and found I had nuthin' to say.
That's the daylight dreamer, wishful thinker's way

I got an exercise machine. Man, I'd be glad to let you try it.
This... well it's a Leika Camera. Maybe you'd like to buy it.
I can get you a real good deal.
I just need enough money to buy myself some modeling clay.
That's the daylight dreamer, wishful thinker's way

On the day that I die, they'll be talking about the dearly departed
And they'll say he never ever finished nuthin' that he started
But I started this song... man, I'm gonna finish it today
Yeah... that's the daylight dreamer....
[stops singing and playing]

[spoken very fast:]
Listen... anyway... why don't we just take a break and finish it later, you know? 'Cuz I could sure use a sandwich. I wanna get myself a BLT or something. And listen... right near the restaurant there's a great old bookstore... right near the restaurant. They got all these great old books... great old comic books. They got Batman.... [fade]
