I'm a dreamer by nature and I've always been tryin'
To dream myself out of this world that I'm in
In my dreams I escape all the troubles around
And it hasn't cost a penny for the pleasures I've found

What is the part that I'll play today
Beggar, a business man, king for a day?
I've played many parts and I'm the first to agree
That I'm still lookin' round for the man that is me

I'm a dreamer by nature and I've always been
Looking for something not there
My financial position don't bother my dreams
'Cause in fairy tale money I'm my own millionaire

What is the part that I'll play today
Beggar, a business man, king for a day?
I've played many parts and I'm the first to agree
That I'm still lookin' round for the man that is me

I'm a rich man in dreams but in real life I've hid
From the fact that I've got me a wife and a kid
If I lose what I've got then they lose it too
Tell me what in this world's a poor dreamer to do

What is the part that I'll play today
Beggar, a business man, king for a day?
I've played many parts and I'm the first to agree
That I'm still lookin' round for the man that is me
