The Lyrics

On this one I've combined the Monkees Pop Hit, "I'm A Believer" with Gary Wright's finely woven, space-dream classic "Dream Weaver". Thinking about it I don't know if one could find two songs that shared this many common lyrics and fit together so well that were so completely and utterly different in tone, feel and meaning. And that's why I'm really starting to like doing these "2 in 1" parody pieces...
I just closed my eyes again; got on the train
Dreamt the dreams I weaved would all come true
That driver weaved my worries
Dreams I could believe
Wove the cloth connecting all my dreams

On the astral plane
Now I'm a dream weaver
Out in space
I'm flying so high
High above
I'm a dream weaver and I believe I'll see the light

I believed in dreams fulfilling fantasies
Dreams I thought would get me through the night
Across the moon I'm flying
on the astral plane
Help me try and forget today's pain

I was out in space
Now I'm a dream weaver
Took that train
Left worries behind
Fly above
I'm a dream weaver, I hope it gets me through the night

(Instrumental interlude)


Ah, dreams of starry skylines
Dreams that chase moon-beams
Dawn may still be coming soon, it seems


But I'm still in space
And I'm a dreamer weaver
Flew away
While there was still time
High above
I'm a dream weaver, those lunar beams sure blind my eyes
Yes, I'm out in space
I'm still a dream weaver
And I am cra-a-a-zed
I'm out of my mind
Well, I'm a dream weaver
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ah-uh-uh

Yes, I'm a dream weaver
(FADE)

...and I thought this was going to be about web design (Dreamweaver being a kind of cool if unbelievably bloated web design tool)... Excellent parody, Paul

Thanks, Phil...I found myself really enjoying the process involved here. Now I'm sitting here thinking of other song combinations that might work together. Think I'd better knock it off for a while before my cranium cracks.

Nicely done. There ought to be more of this stuff.
Paul Robinson - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, LJ - I agree.

Great meta-parody! I'm thinking of doing more of these, too.

Very clever. . .hats off. Would like to try something similar, but the approach is too tough for my feeble brain.
Paul Robinson - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Hmmm...the reply I THOUGHT I posted about an hour ago isn't here. Well, OK...JD & JB - Thank You! JB - I think once you got rolling on it you wouldn't have any problem. This one went a lot easier than the first one I did last week, although it's possible this material meshed much better.

Good one, Paul, although I'm having trouble keeping the original melody in my head (hint, hint) 5's
Rod Worden - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Well done, Paul, the title alone was worth these 5s!
Paul Robinson - July 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Adagio, Thanks! Hmmm...I'll have to borrow my friend's copy of that Monkees track since I don't have it. I might be able to do that when I go to the Valley tomorrow. Rod -Thanks, this one was really fun to do.

these kinds of parodies really appeal to the schizophrenic in me

Thanks, alvin.

Nice job. I don't know the "Dream Weaver" song, but I know "I'm A Believer" very well. 5-5-5.

Adagio & JD - thanks for the re-votes...

Nice concept, P-Rob. I also enjoy fitting the lyrics of one song to the music of another. Maybe I'll submit one.
Paul Robinson - August 04, 2004 - Report this comment
Spaff - Thanks! Hope you do, would look forward to seeing it.
Death To Triple One Voters - November 22, 2005 - Report this comment
All of the votes here appear to be 5-5-5's except for one lousy 1-1-1. Triple One voting needs to stop; this was NOT an off-paced parody. The basterd that made that vote needs to get a life.
