"Dreamgirl" is an unreleased song by Lana Del Rey. It was recorded in 2011. The full song leaked on June 3, 2019, and the complete recording session including stems, the acapella and instrumental, and vocal outtakes leaked on May 8, 2020.

BackgroundEdit

The song was recorded on an instrumental named "Destiny" that was chosen from five 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 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.

LyricsEdit

I can be your dream girl
I can be your dream girl

When you wake up to the day
and see the city dark and gray
You can already see the curtain coming down
Sitting, 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 dream girl
(Shoo wop shoo baby)
I can be your dream girl
(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 dream girl, 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 dream girl, baby

Candle light burns twice as bright
Baby burns half as long
So keep your fire burning
So you always love me strong
Shoo wop Shoo wop
Ah ah
Shoo wop Shoo wop
Ah, baby
Shoo wop Shoo wop
Ah ah
Shoo wop Shoo wop
Ah, baby

Now it’s nighttime, driving uptown
City sparkling, but you shut down
So you signal right and turn your engine on
Cars fly by you, stars beside you
Turn the 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 dream girl, baby
I can be your dream girl, baby
