"Working on a Dream" as written by and Bruce Springsteen....
Out here the nights are long, the days are lonely
I think of you and I'm working on a dream
I'm working on a dream

Now the cards I've drawn's a rough hand, darling
I straighten the back and I'm working on a dream
I'm working on a dream

Come on!

I'm working on a dream
Though sometimes it feels so far away
I'm working on a dream
And I know it will be mine someday

Rain pourin' down, I swing my hammer
My hands are rough from working on a dream
I'm working on a dream

Let's go!

I'm working on a dream
Though trouble can feel like it's here to stay
I'm working on a dream
Well our love will chase trouble away

Alright!

That's professional whistling right there!

I'm working on a dream
Though it can feel so far away
I'm working on a dream
Our love will make it real someday

The sun rise up, I climb the ladder
The new day breaks and I'm working on a dream
I'm working on a dream [Repeat: x3]

Hey!

I'm working on a dream
Though it can feel so far away
I'm working on a dream
Our love will make it real someday
I'm working on a dream
Though it can feel so far away
I'm working on a dream
And our love will make it real someday

    General CommentSure the boss could do better, but this song with its near-poor simplicity does not belie its brilliance. On the contrary I think it's another great piece of his, simple, but goes straight deep into my heart. I guess that's where the magic lies.

    General CommentBruce, you are and will remain the man, The Boss. I can't wait to see the half-time show, which, hopefully, will be at Giants Stadium. Coming home one more time, baby!

    General CommentI can appreciate the positive message he’s trying to send, it has a cool beginning and the whistling blue-collared workers are a nice touch, but other than that...bruce can do much better
