I'm dreamin' in the mornin'
I'm dreamin' all through the night
And when I'm dreamin' I know that it's all right
Woo hoo hoa

I'm dreamin' in the evening
I'm dreamin' all through the day
And when I'm dreamin' I know that it's okay
Woo hoo hoa

Daddy says I've gotta pay some bills
So I can learn to be responsible
Some day I'll have a family of my own
And they will need for me to be full grown

But I'm dreamin' in the mornin'
I'm dreamin' all through the night
And when I'm dreamin' I know that it's all right
Woo hoo hoa

I'm dreamin' in the evening
I'm dreamin' all through the day
And when I'm dreamin' I know that it's okay
Woo hoo hoa

Teacher says I gotta learn some facts
So I can make it in the Widener Stacks
These are days that will define my life
I shouldn't waste them on these friends of mine

But I
Gotta be a big boy
('Cos I really want a chance)
Woah!
Gotta pick up my toys
('Cos I really want a chance)

When I start to feel the feeling comin' over me
(I really want a chance)
I soon forget all about responsibility
(I really want a chance)
I walk around in a wide-awake daydream
(I really want a chance)
Things are better out here than they might seem

There are bluebirds
In the meadows
And the bees are flying around
And the goslings
At the river
At a loss so far from the ground

I am running (I am running)
Through the meadow (Through the meadow)
And the sun is (And the sun is)
Shining on me (Shining on me)
I am singing (I am singing)
My voice is ringing (My voice is ringing)
I can sing so loud (I can sing so loud)

And the angels (And the angels)
In the heavens (In the heavens)
They are wondering (They are wondering)
"Why am I so glad?" (Why am I so glad?)
"Why am I so glad?" (Why am I so glad?)
"Why am I so" (Why am I so)
"Why am I so" (Why am I so)
I am running (I am running)
Through the meadow (Through the meadow)
And the sun is (And the sun is)
Shining on me (Shining on me)
I am singing (I am singing)
My voice is ringing (My voice is ringing)
I can sing so loud (I can sing so loud)

And I'm dreamin' in the mornin'
I'm dreamin' all through the night
And when I'm dreamin' I know that it's all right
Woo hoo hoa

I'm dreamin' in the evening
I'm dreamin' all through the day
And when I'm dreamin' I know that it's okay
Woo hoo hoa

(Woo hoo) Hoa
(Woo hoo) Hoa
(Woo hoo) Hoa
(Woo hoo) Hoa
(Woo hoo) Woah

I don't want to get with your program
I don't want to get with your program
I don't want to get with your program
Take back the love!

    General Commentan ode to nostalgia, memory, and youth

    General CommentAfter listening to The Red Album several albums, this song is clearly the stand-out. This is easily one of the best Weezer songs. I'm glad that Rivers can still write a song of this quality. Lyrically, it fits in well with the retrospective perspective that Rivers give of his metalhead youth. Just as Rivers said in the opening track "I will learn by studying the lessons in my dreams." Pat's drumming, Brian's interlude and the build-up at the end with the harmonies are the real highlights.

    General CommentIt's a very good song, and from what I read, Rivers had to fight to get this one to stay on the album, I'm glad he did. Not the best track on Red Album, but by far not the worst.

    General CommentDreamin' is an excellent song. A clear masterpiece. I would still like to hear 'This is the Way' though...

    To me, this song is about not wanting to grow up or take on the responsibilities that come with life. The character that this song describes just wants to dream all day long, and no t have to take on any responsibilities.

    This is evident through the whole song. During the chorus of the first part of the song, he describes what people are telling him. How he needs to do good in school, and pay some bills so he can make it in life. But all he wants to do is sit around and relax.

    General Commentdude, i just hit a bowl of purple kush, and i just realized exactly what this song is about. this song is about blazing. hes dreaming in the morning, day, and night. meaning hes smoking. i think dreaming means like when you daydream or think alot when ur baked.

    "When I start to feel the feeling comin' over me
    I soon forget all about responsibility
    I walk around in a wide-awake daydream
    Things are better out here than they might seem"

    i think those statements pretty much prove that he's singing about smoking pot.
