I Had a Dream

Daniel Johnston  Buy

I had a dream about you

You were the queen of quite a few

And I was there, but you didn't care

I didn't matter somehow.

The band played and you sang a tune

And the stars fell down from the moon

And you smiled a smile that parted the sea

But you didn't notice me


Your eyes filled up the sky and they were blue

And you had a weird monkey there with you too

And you danced a jig and tipped his hat

And you turned around with a grin so fat

And he was me.

There were lights and fireworks and cannons going off in your honor

And I was worried,

But a man said “Don't worry, nothing can harm her”

And I grabbed the microphone and I stood all alone

And I looked up at you, and you looked down at me

And then you said “Off with his head”.

I had a dream about you
