She said, "Love, love, love is everything"
I said, "Okay, I guess, whatever"
She said, "What does that mean?"
I said, "Nothing, it's just good to have a backup plan"

She said, "I guess that means you don't got love"
I said, "Maybe I love everyone"
She said, "That's the same as loving no one"
I said, "Okay, I guess, whatever"

I have a dream of a new American language
One with a little bit more Spanish
I have a dream of a new pop music
That tells the truth with a good beat and some nice harmonies

I have a dream
I have a dream

Tourist towns are a drag sometimes
But in non-tourist towns, you can get beat up
Just for looking a little different
I guess the thing to do is just stay at home
Yeah, but sometimes I think the thing to do
Would be to get a place way out in Missouri
Put down as many months' rent as you can part with
Tell everybody else you went to France

I said, "Remember that conversation we had about love?
Well, I think you were right"
She said, "I don't remember saying nothing about love
It must have been a fantasy of the moment"

I have a dream
I have a dream

I have a dream of Michaelangelo on that ceiling 
Working through weekend to make more money 
I have a dream of replacing Steve Kerr on the Bulls 
And being the little white guy they let shoot the threes 

I dream of joining the Mafia
And whether people like me is unimportant
I dream of your clock radio
Waking you up with my songs

I have a dream of a new American language 
I dream of new beginnings
I dream of saturation bombing
I dream mostly about love

I have a dream
I have a dream
I have a dream
I have a dream
