Words & Music:

John Sebastian (The Lovin' Spoonful)


There is an arrangement of this in the August 2006 issue of Acoustic Guitar.


C                A7       Dm7               G

What a day for a daydream, what a day for a daydreaming boy.

C                 A7       Dm7                G

And I'm lost in a daydream, dreamin' ‘bout my bundle of joy.


F             D7/F#             C     A7

And even if time ain't really on my side.

F                   D7/F#             C       A7

It's one of those days for takin' a walk outside.

F                D7/F#         C           A7

I'm blowin the day to take a walk in the sun.

G                                  G7

And fall on my face on somebody's new mowed lawn.


I've been havin' a sweet dream, I been dreamin' since I woke up today.

It starred me & my sweet-pea, 'cuz she's the one makes me feel this way.


And even if time is passin' me by a lot.

I couldn't care less about the dues you say I got.

Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for droppin' my load.

A pie in the face for being a sleepy bull toad.




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 pick up your ears.

Or you may be daydreamin' for a thousand years...


What a day for a daydream, custom-made for a daydreamin' boy.

And I'm lost in a daydream, dreamin' bout my bundle of joy.
