Cheer up, sleepy Jean, Oh what can it mean,
To a Daydream Believer and a Homecoming Queen?
This is a song where the boy wakes up to reality in lewd of a good dream. And the girl sees the boy as average rather than what she wanted...a Knight on his steed. There's a gap between a dream and reality here in this song.

Take the last train to Clarksville
And I'll meet you at the station.
You can be there by 4:30
'Cause I've made your reservation,
Don't be slow, Oh no no no, oh no no no!
'Cause I'm leaving in the morning
And I must see you again.
We'll have one more night together
'Til the morning brings my train
And I must go. Oh no no no, oh no no no!
And I don't know if I'm ever coming home.
A bouncy rock-pop tempo seems to run counter to lyrics about a soldier spending one last night with his girl before going off to war.
