Oh, I used to be your baby
Used to be your pride and joy, mmh
You used to take me dancing
Just like any other boy
But now you've found another partner
And left me like a broken toy

Oh it's someone else you're taking
Someone else you're playin' to
Honey, though I'm aching
Know just what I have to do
If I can't have you when I'm wakin'
I'll go to sleep and dream I'm with you

Oh, take me, take me, take me
To the dreamer's ball
Mmm, I'll be right on time and I'll dress so fine
You're gonna love me when you see me, I won't have to worry
Take me, take me
Promise not to wake me till it's morning
(Ooh, it's all been true)

"What do you say about that, hey honey?
Are you gonna take me to that dreamer's ball?
I'd like that"

Right on that forty second street
Way down down town we must go

Oh, take me, take me, take me
I'm your plaything now (uuuh)
You make my life worthwhile with the slightest smile
Or destroy me with a barely perceptible whisper
Gently take me, remember I'll be dreamin' of my baby
At the dreamer's ball

Oh, take me hold me
Remember what you told me
You'd meet me at the dreamer's ball
I'll meet you at the dreamer's ball (oooh)

    General CommentThis song seems to concern a lost love, the song reminisces about the time they spent together going dancing and now they are with someone else.

    Its almost a song about regret that the other is neer going to come back and all he/she has is the memories.

    General CommentA clever and unique song about a lost love and the desire to be with them again, but realizing that that can only happen in his dreams.

    General CommentI think that this song is about how two lovers were seperated but they will always and forever have on thing. Dreams. They both had this dream - "the dreamers ball" where they can reunite.

    I believe it is something where they are apart for a period of time, commonly called "taking a break" for whatever reason, but whenever they are lonely and need the other all they have to do is enter "the dreamers ball"

    General CommentI'm surprised that more people haven't commented. To me, the singer's girl broke up with him, and he still loves her, so he makes up this dreamer's ball, so he can still be with her, if only in his dreams.

    General Commentthe girl is a BBBBch and the guy is too naive... I guess...

    but then again maybe the girl is not that bad, coz this is like the guy's point of view, he can rant and vent and be sad and think that hes the only one whos gettin hurt while the girl is already "playing" with others. The guy is just drowning in his sadness and he doesnt wanna try to move on. How sad for a guy :(

    one of my favourite song.

    General CommentI love Queen. Not the biggest fan in the entire world. But, I keep coming back to this song and "Jealousy". These guys could write these brilliant, but maudlin, tunes perfectly.
