Dear Mr. Fantasy play us a tune
Something to make us all happy
Do anything, take us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy

You are the one who can make us all laugh
Doing this, you break down in tears
Please, don't be sad if it was a straight life you had
None of us would've known you all the years

Each time you choose to sing the rock and roll blues
You take everybody's loneliness with you
What do you lose each time you face down a room?
All of us see how it changes through you

So sing of the ocean of tears you have sailed
Of strangers and lovers that took you
All of us sailed and all of us failed
In one way, we don't ever hear you

Dear Mr. Fantasy play us a tune
Something to make us all happy
Do anything, take us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy
