Another new day just came and went
Working, I sail 'bout the wave, got spent
Working like a dog, laying asphalt down
On a two-lane black top leaving this town

The red hot sun don't bother me now
What gets me is when the day is done
Cold dark house and an unmade bed
Where the dreams of Martina roll around in my head

Dreams of Martina, what can I say?
Dreams of Martina stand in my way
Tonight I'm gonna lay that heartache down

Everybody tells me that I'm not myself
Somebody tried to set me up with someone else
Casual conversation and a moon-lit stroll
It's the perfect situation and my blood runs cold

My friends can't see what's bothering me
I guess they wanna know me like I used to be
Maybe liven up the party with my lampshade on
Before dreams of Martina turned my heart to stone

Dreams of Martina, what can I say?
Dreams of Martina stand in my way
Tonight I'm gonna lay that heartache down

The wind and rain don't cause me no pain
I guess I've grown accustomed to the same ol' thing
It appears I might suffer from the lack of a king
But the dreams of Martina won't let me sleep

Dreams of Martina, what can I say?
Dreams of Martina stand in my way
Tonight I'm gonna lay that heartache down
Tonight I'm gonna lay that heartache down
Dreams of Martina!
