Dave Matthews Band - Dreamgirl Lyrics

Yeah, Ya, Yeah
Yeah, Ya, Yeah Oh.

Yeah... Hey, alright...
(I) I would dig a hole all the way to China
unless of course I was there
and I'd dig my way home.
If by digging I could steal
The wind from the sails of the greedy men who ruled the world.
Still you're my best friend
and after a good, good drunk
you and me wake up and make love
after a deep sleep where I was dreaming
I was dreaming of a

Dreamgirl (Yeah)

I was feeling like a creep as I watched you asleep
face down in the grass in the park in the middle of hot afternoon
Your top was untied and I thought how nice it'd be to follow the sweat down your spine.
You're like my best friend
Oh, after a good good drink
you and me wake up and make love
after a deep sleep where I was dreaming
I was dreaming of a

Dreamgirl (yeah)
Dreamgirl (yeah)

Caught by a wave my back to the ocean.
It knocks me off my feet and
just as I find my footing
here you come again!

Dreamgirl, oh
Dreamgirl (mumble man)
The deep end...

    I was feeling like a creep as I watched you asleep
    , Face down in the grass in the park in the middle of hot afternoon, Your top was untied and I thought how nice it'd be to follow the sweat down your spine. Love that verse.

  11. Bonniegamerocker

    My father watched these songs everyday on the radio when they came out, he said he listened to them because it relieved him of his stress, it does the same for me, Dave Matthews is a God. 🤟🏽

  12. Vanderlei Moreira da Fonseca

    The Dave do video with Julia Roberts It's not for anyone

  13. tatakai no kaizen

  15. البنت السحريه

    From 2018

  16. promontorium

    People all commenting this was "back when MTV showed videos" Well, yes and no. They stopped showing videos like 20 years ago. There was MTV 2, but even that faded out the videos, even though their whole mantra was "MTV2 is for videos!" For a few years after they would show a very select few. If you're Dave Matthews, you're one of the select few in the end.

  17. dudeimbig

  34. wayne moores

    How sweet, how innocent

  35. Adama Tova

    good song - no video necessary.

  36. The Rambler

    wouldn't it be awesome if the first 20 sec of this song was your alarm tone in the morning

    Caroline Landiss

    hell yes

    Bill DeFulvio

    You may just have a way to do that dude! Just installed this app a couple days ago., it lets you pic any youtube song you want and it plays as your alarm...make 'awesome' happen man! i love it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cimleah.easyalarm

    The Rambler · Years ago, I had an Alarm Clock that played CD's. Had it set to play 'Dreamgirl' every morning before getting ready to go to work. Then played same CD driving to work. Everytime I hear songs from that album, it takes me back to line work assembling anti-lock brake components lol. Strange....how certain things can trigger indescribable 'emotions' (if you will) from experiences in the past.


    No cuz, I'd have to put bad thoughts of waking up for work, into this song

  37. 9thchild

    I was feeling like a creep as I watched you asleep, face down in the grass in the park in the middle of a hot afternoon. Your top was untied and I thought, how nice it would be to follow the sweat down your spine.

  46. bruce price

    16 yrs for me

  47. Chaosroy

    Still my all time favorite band to this day!

  48. Darth Barbie

    The MAN revoked my white privilege back in 1999 for talking too much trash about Dave Matthews. Now I have to put "other" when asked my race- or the faceless men in the hats come slap me around. No offense to you fans out there, but the stereotype really is true, even if you complain about it. This is the whitest band EVER.

    Midwest Mopars

    Darth Barbie half the people in the band are black.

    Hijabi Mommy

    I can like this band right? I'm black but am I allowed to like this band? Hahaha


    This is one of the most ethnically diverse bands I've seen. Shut your mouth.
    Coldplay is obviously the whitest band. (I still love coldplay).

    Anthony LaFache

    What are you even talking about? Your comment doesn’t make any sense.

    Gabriel Villegas

    Darth Barbie even though hes from Africa? Lol and is the only white guy in the band

  49. Dukiny Gaming

    Dave Matthews is slender man

    Brianna Caswell

    ahh!!! right???

  50. Mistermax30

    This ugly bitch is no dream girl.

    C Jack

    +Mistermax30 You have issues


    +C Jack Yes, I have eyes.

    Luis Jaimes

    Mistermax30 Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... everyone knows that.




  51. Anderson Vilaça

  52. Johnathan G

    10 years on and this song is still awesome


    +Johnathan G So is the video

    Rhianna S.

    Johnathan G It is, isn't it my dear. 😘

  53. William H. Baird

    Great song ... But Live it is best!

  54. flycreeper

    I love this video: feels somehow that the character she plays here gives you a small insight into the Julia Roberts that isn't part of the public eye: something of the wonderfully humble, awkward, girl she must be sometimes away from the cameras that she isn't in her films (even Notting Hill).

    Hopefully that's part of why she appeared in the video, aside from liking DMB.

  55. Gary Pratt

    Boyd was ripped AF

  56. Mr Bear Lee There - BearRon

    Run Julia run.

  57. Cool Guy

    Just keep hitting 7

  64. Prostě SaB


  65. Stephen L

    When MTV Showed music

  66. Jon C Wolf

    My nick name for David Matthews is "The path of least resistance" with regard to music. melody and rhythm in their "constant state of flux" [is that an oxymoron?] flow right through him. But he is a humorist as well. Kudos too, to the videographer['s] who are able to capture the seriousness of the humorousness,,I mean the humorousness of the seriousness of his lyrics in so many of his songs like "dreamgirl". Kudos too to!!

  67. Jonah Salen

    Before there was slender man there was this.


    You've won the internet.

  68. bobby cabrera

  74. Alaina Rhodes

    A lot of people didn't like Julia Roberts hair for this music video. Personally, I really like it. I think it's different and she definitely pulls it off. I kind of want to dread/twist my hair now haha

  75. Jane Pap

  91. Alexandre Melo

    Julia Roberts <3

  92. Danny Dunn

    finally realized my obsession with dave...I woke this morning with a smile from a dream...forgot the dream, started thinking I may have been bottling my emotions lately given that nostalgic feeling from my dream...listened to time bomb...listened to a few more songs...clicked on this video and realized my dream had been about a girl kissing me on the neck...dave writes songs that can tie 3 hours of my life together emotionally...I'm still sad I woke up, but glad I have dave and music in my life

  93. James
