"Dreamgirl" (alternately known as "I'm Your Favorite Song") is an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey. It was recorded in 2011. The song was produced by Ryland Canniff. The full song leaked on June 3, 2019.

Background[]

The song was recorded on an instrumental named "Destiny" that was chosen from seven others that were given to Del Rey and remained unused. The lyrics were written quickly merely as a joke, as expressed by herself during a vocal outtake of the song where she says "Whatever this song is a joke anyways".

The complete recording session including the a cappella demo titled "I'm Your Favorite Song", stems, instrumental, and vocal outtakes leaked on May 8, 2020.

The song uses the same instrumental as "Beautifully Bad" by Idle Warship. It is unclear if "Dreamgirl" samples it or if the beat was eventually sold to Warship.

Lyrics[]

Final version[]

I can be your dreamgirl
I can be your dreamgirl

When you wake up to the day
And see the city dark and gray
You can already see the curtain coming down
Sit and open up your files
Right-click just to see her smile
Transfer to your heart and let the world go 'round

(Shoo wop shoo baby)
I can be your dreamgirl
(Shoo wop shoo baby)
I can be your dreamgirl
(Shoo wop shoo baby)
When it all gets too much
Darling, I'm soft to the touch
Hush, hush and stop your rushing
I can be your dreamgirl, baby

iPhone ringing, boss is screaming
On the TV, news is streaming
It means nothing you to you though, you tune it out
Close your eyes and change the station
Switch the pictures on your wavelength
Put me on your playlist, I’m your favorite song

(Shoo wop shoo baby)
I can be your dreamgirl
(Shoo wop shoo baby)
I can be your dreamgirl
(Shoo wop shoo baby)
When it all gets too much
Darling, I'm soft to the touch
Hush, hush and stop your rushing
I can be your dreamgirl, baby

Candlelight burns twice as bright, baby burns half as long
So keep your fire burning so you always love me strong
Shoo wop shoo wop
Woah woah
Shoo wop shoo wop
Woah, baby
Shoo wop shoo wop
Woah woah
Shoo wop shoo wop
Woah, baby

Now it’s nighttime, driving uptown
City's sparkling, but you shut down
So you signal right and turn your engine off
Cars fly by you, stars beside you
Turn that radio inside you
To the station that’s playing the one you love

(Shoo wop shoo baby)
I can be your dreamgirl
(Shoo wop shoo baby)
I can be your dreamgirl
(Shoo wop shoo baby)
I can be your dreamgirl
I can be your dreamgirl
When it all gets too much
Darling, I'm soft to the touch
Hush, hush and stop your rushing
I can be your dreamgirl, baby
I can be your dreamgirl, baby

Oooooh

Close your eyes and change the station
Switch the pictures on your wavelength
Put me on your playlist, I'm your favorite song

Shoo wop shoo wop
Shoo-wop shoo-wop-wa-wa
Whoa, baby
Shoo wop shoo wop
Shoo-wop shoo-wop

Darlin', I'm soft to the touch
Hush, hush and stop your rushing

Shoo wop shoo wop
Shoo wop shoo baby
Dreamgirl, baby
Shoo wop shoo wop
Shoo wop shoo baby
Dreamgirl, baby
Shoo wop shoo wop

Candlelight burns twice as bright, baby burns half as long
Keep your fire burning so you always love me strong
Candlelight burns twice as bright, baby burns half as long
So keep your fire burning so you always love me strong

Woah, baby
