About Daydreamin'

"Daydreamin'" is the third single taken from Lupe Fiasco's album Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor (2006) and features soul singer Jill Scott. The single is based on a sample of "Daydream in Blue" by I Monster, a song that samples "Daydream" by Gunter Kallmann Choir (which in itself is a cover, the original being written by The Wallace Collection). The song's lyrics are a critique of pop culture, especially of the current state of hip hop music. The song was released in the UK and US on September 11, 2006; however, a download-only version was available one week earlier and charted at #46 (without any physical sales). In 2008 "Daydreamin'" won the Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance. It was ranked the best rap song of 2006 by many publications. This song was also featured in an AT&T commercial during May 2008 for a Samsung phone.

Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
On a beautiful day

Daydream
I dream of you amid the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

As I spy from behind my giant robot's eyes
I keep 'em happy cause I might fall out if he cries
Scared of heights, so I might pass out if he flies
Keep 'em on autopilot cause I can't drive
Room enough for one, I tell my homies they can't ride
Unless they sittin' on the shoulders but that's way too high
Let's try, not to step on the children,
The news camera's filmin', this walkin', project building
Now there's hoes selling hoes, like right around the toes
And the crack heads beg, at about the lower leg
There's crooked police, that's stationed at the knees
And they do drive-bys like up and down the thighs
And there's car chase, going on at the waist
Keep a vest on my chest
I'm sitting in my room, as I'm looking out the face
Somethin' to write about
I still got some damage from fightin' the White House
Just a

Daydream
I dream of you amid the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

Daydream
I dream of you amid the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

Now come on everybody let's make cocaine cool
We need a few more half naked women up in the pool
And hold this mac-10 that's all covered in jewels
And can you please put your titties closer to the 22's
And where's the champagne, we need champagne
Now look as hard as you can with this blunt in your hand
And know hold up your chain, slow motion through the flames
Now cue the smoke machines and the simulated rain
But not too loud 'cause the baby's sleepin'
I wonder if it knows what the world is keeping
Up both sleeves while he lay there dreamin'
Me and my robot tip-toe round creepin'
I had to turn my back on what got you paid
I couldn't see half the hood on me like Abu Ghraib
But I like to thank the streets that drove me crazy
And all the televisions out there that raised me
I was

Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
On a beautiful day

Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day

Daydream
I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day
