Well, I wanna tell the story about a hard luck guy
Nobody seems to love me, I guess that's the reason why

Just dreams, dreams all night long and through the day
Yes, and it's so sad, oh, to break my heart this way

Yes, I'm not handsome or romantic, I don't have wavy hair
Won't you girls please have mercy
The way you treat me ain't fair

Why does bad luck follow me
Oh, dreams, seems that's all that's left for me

Well, I just can't get no place with a doggone thing I plan
Every girl I try my luck on belongs to some other man
Where, where, where is the one I'm dreaming of
All gone, gone with last night's dreams of love

Yes, last night as I lay sleepin', I dreamed about a queen
And it hurt me so bad, people
To wake up and find out it was just a dream

Dream, dream is all I can do
Oh, I'm so tired dreamin' dreams, dreams
That won't come true
