Lies, lies, lies, everywhere
Said the father to the son
Your peppermint breath's gonna choke him to death, daddy
Watch your little black sheep run
He got the knives, knives, knives in his back every
Time he opens up
He says "You gotta be strong if you wanna be a man," mister
I don't know how you can have
Sweet dreams
Sweet dreams
Land, land of liberty, we're run by a
Constipated man
When you live in the past you refuse to see, when your
Daughter come home, nine months pregnant, with your
Five billion points of light, you're gonna
Shine 'em on the face of your friends
They got the earth in a sling, they got the world on her knees
They even got your zipper between their teeth
Sweet dreams
Sweet dreams

Db           Ab       Eb           Ab
You say, you say, you say that you have 'em
Db         Ab       Bb
I say that you're a liar
Bb5    Ab5 Bb5     Bb5    Ab5 Bb5
Swee --eet Dreams, Swee --eet Dreams

(short solo over Bb5 and Ab5 vamp)

     Db     Ab     Eb           Ab  Db
Then go on, go on, go on, go on and dream
     Eb          Bb5     Ab5  Bb5
Your house is on fi --re         come along now

(Bb5 Ab5 vamp)
Well well, Summer wind been
Catching up with me
Elephant mind, missy you don't have, you're for-
getting to fly, darling when you speak, I gotta
Hazy, lazy susan
Taking turns all over my dreams
I got lizards and snakes, running through my body
Funny how they all have my face
Sweet Dreams
Sweet Dreams

(Repeat Bridge)
