Intro:

Verse 1:

What a day for a daydream
[1: What a day 4: Custom-made] for a daydreamin' boy
And I'm lost in a daydream
Dreamin' bout my bundle of joy

Chorus 1:

And even if time ain't really on my side
It's one of those days for takin' a walk outside
I'm blowin' the day to take a walk in the sun
And fall on my face on somebody's new-mowed lawn

Verse 2:

I been havin' a sweet dream
I been dreamin' since I woke up today
It's starring me and my sweet dream
'Cause she's the one that makes me feel this way

Chorus 2:

And even if time is passin' me by a lot
I couldn't care less about the dues you say I've got
Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load
A pie in the face for bein' a sleepy bull toad

[whistling over verse chords]

Chorus 3:

And you can be sure that if you're feelin' right
A daydream will last 'til long into the night
Tomorrow at breakfast you may prick up your ears
Or you may be daydreamin' for a thousand years

[repeat verse 1]

[whistling over chorus chords; fade]

    First, it's "follow my face on somebody's new mown lawn. "
    It's about that hazy, just woke up feeling on a sunny day.
