"Daydream Believer" as written by and John C Stewart....
7-A
What number is this to?
7-A
Okay, don't get excited man, it's 'cause I'm short, I know

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings
The six-o'clock alarm would never ring
But six rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
The shaving razor's cold and it stings

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh, what can it mean to a
Daydream believer and a
Homecoming queen?

You once thought of me
As a white knight on his steed
Now you know how happy I can be
Oh, our good time starts and ends
Without all I want to spend
But how much, baby, do we really need?

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh, what can it mean to a
Daydream believer and a
Homecoming queen?

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh, what can it mean to a
Daydream believer and a
Homecoming queen?

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh, what can it mean to a
Daydream believer and a
Homecoming queen?

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh, what can it mean to a
Daydream believer and a
Homecoming queen?

Cheer up, sleepy Jean

    General CommentOkay this my first and maybe last 'what does this mean'. I'm writing because a previous post had the song being about a depressed person singing about a depressing situation of being poor. I think not.

    No one sings of bluebirds in a depressed state, maybe ravens, but never bluebirds.
    'Mr, Bluebird on my shoulder...'

    What we have is a happy go lucky (funky) flake who has all these dreams that never really pan out. Still he gets up in the morning and goes to work hoping to catch a big break that will probably never happen...'Oh, what can it mean' refers to the meaning of it all...life. His eternal sunny disposition is not shared by his mate, a former home coming queen, who was won over by his dreams, but isn't happy with the reality of them being poor. Still says today is a new day and who knows maybe this will be the lucky one that turns it all around. Don't give up on me Jean and don't give up on my dreams!

    Really listen to Davy's voice, listen to the underlying hope and happiness that hope brings. The song is spiritual.
