Lyrics
It Was All in a Daydream I Had

When I was a little boy
I think I was about the age of nine
Living in the backwoods, but everything was fine
Looking at the sky and waiting for a sign

The only thing I ever saw was the moon and the sun the clouds in my mind
Inside, making shapes in another time
Looking ahead, but kept on falling behind

It was all in a daydream I had

Up and away, just beginning the day
I see all the people just moping around
With their heads to the ground
They’re afraid to make a sound

When I was an older boy
I think I was about the age of ten
I could not think of the right words then
I could be wrong, but I am quite certain
That the daydream I had was really the end

It was all in a daydream I had

Daydream I had…

I like the Sly inspired intro. Funky and punky! Nice melody. It's very cool how you added the little rhythmic hesitation at the end of each vocal phrase in the verses. Cool chorus. I like Bob's vocal and synth additions. Quality mix!

Hi Guys!!!
So many ways this rocks... I agree with Tim on the timing of vocals, really dig that. Bob does an excellent job as well on the complimentary backing vox. Really enjoyed the lyrics especially last lines of second verse. Downloaded!
Congratulations on 100! Wow quite an achievement.

a living daydream.....
comes true.....to hear dave & bob playing together. very cool composition and playing. the outro is fantastic....... cool layers on the vocals and a neat wiggly synth cognates on 100 tunes posted dave...... i would guess you have a few 100 more in your notebooks.

Outro was cool
That was Bob's idea. The sort of I am the Walrus ending. He knew I'd like it.

Thanks Vic. I'll need you for 125, 150, 175 and 200

100 More!!
It's hard to believe we've survived 100 songs already. I guess we were too busy throwing TV sets out the hotel window to notice.

Back to the music - I loved this tune before you let me be a part of it. I can't think of a better, more authentic Lavalamp tune to post as your 100th, even better than your Infinite Strawberry Meadows tune that I love. You own the "daydream" domain.

Thanks for letting me be a part of this great collaboration. Race ya to 200!

Happy 100th
You should get a telegram from The Queen for reaching 100! Beautifully produced song, and the music is full of life and interest. Some echoes of British pop here (a good thing!) Interesting lyrics, too. Much enjoyed.

excellent
I wasn't expecting this take on it at all. the other version reminded me of the 60's and this one is making me think that I may go put on the Happy Mondays when I'm done at MJ today. this is phenomenal, you guys make a great team. that piano is the perfect touch.
