Sweet, Sweet, Fantasy

Am I late? This week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme is Delightful, Pleasant, and Sweet as suggested by Paula Light of Light Motifs II.

Fantasy is a song recorded by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey from her fifth studio album, Daydream released in 1995 by Columbia Records as the lead single from the album. The song was written by Carey and Dave hall, both serving as primary producers alongside Sean Combs. The song heavily samples Tom Tom Club’sĀ 1981 song Genius Love and incorporates various other beats and grooves arranged by the former. The song’s lyrics describe a woman who is in love with a man, and how every time she sees him she starts fantasizing about an impossible relationship with him. The remix for the song features rap verses from Ol Dirty Bastard, something Carey arranged to assist in her crossover into the hip hop market and credited for introducing R&B and hip hop collaboration into mainstream pop culture, and for popularizing rap as a featuring act. – Wikipedia

I love this song… it’s one of my go-to songs back in high school… it’s been more than 2 decades, but feels like yesterday.

Fantasy

Keepin’ it real, son, that’s right
The shining star, you’re my shining star, girl

Yo, New York in the house (come on)
Is Brooklyn in the house? (That’s right)
Uptown in the house (let’s go)
Shaolin, are you in the house? (Don’t stop)
Boogie Down, are you in the house? (Yeah)
Sacramento in the house (I like that)
Atlanta, Georgia, are you in the house? (Come on)
West Coast, are you in the house?
Japan, are you in the house?
Everybody, are you in the house?
Baby, baby, come on
Baby, come on, baby, come on (Bad Boy)

Oh, when you walk by every night
Talkin’ sweet and lookin’ fine
I get kinda hectic inside
Mmm, baby, I’m so into you
Darlin’, if you only knew
All the things that flow through my mind

With my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend (oh, yeah, yeah)
There’s no beginning and there is no end (so deep, so deep)
Feels like I’m dreaming, but I’m not sleeping (sweet, sweet fantasy)
Fantasy (remix)
Sweet fantasy (sweet, sweet)
You’re my fantasy
Sweet fantasy
Sweet, sweet fantasy Images of rapture
Creep into me slowly
As you’re goin’ to my head (I like that)
And my heart beats faster
When you take me over
Time and time and time again I’m in heaven
With my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend
There’s no beginning and there is no end
Feels like I’m dreaming, but I’m not sleeping
Fantasy (Remix)
Sweet fantasy (yeah yeah)
Sweet fantasy (yeah)
Oh, oh it’s just a sweet I’m in heaven
With my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend (oh)
There’s no beginning and there is no end (so deep, baby, just a sweet)
Feels like I’m dreaming, but I’m not sleeping (fantasy)

Ladies and Gentlemen
Introducing the Old, Dirty, Doggy
Here we go now
Me and Mariah
Go back like babies with pacifiers (that’s right)
Old Dirt Dog’s no liar (uh)
Keep your fantasy hot like fire
Jump, jump, let me see you do the stump
Girls, let me see you shake your rump (yeah)
Brothers, hit it from the back and front
And let’s do it, do it, do it, uh-huh
I’m a little bit of country
I’m a little bit of rock and roll
And I’m soul to soul
Big letters, all big and bold
Old Dirty Bastard, bask and blow I’m in heaven
With my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend
There’s no beginning and there is no end (sweet fantasy)
Feels like I’m dreaming, but I’m not sleeping

What you gonna do when you get out of jail?
I’m gonna do a remix
What you gonna do when you get out of jail?
I’m gon’ do a remix
What you gonna do when you get out of jail?
I’m gon’ have some fun
What you gonna do when you get out of jail?
I’m gon’ have some fun (yeah)

With my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend (lovin’ baby, summer baby)
There’s no beginning and there is no end (fantasy baby, oh)
Feels like I’m dreaming, but I’m not sleeping (girl)
My fantasy

I’m in heaven (sugar pie, sugar pie)
With my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend (sugar pie, yeah)

    1. Oh, that hype was worldwide! Unfortunately, I never learned how… I’ve always feared getting physically hurt by crashing into something… šŸ˜€ šŸ˜€ šŸ˜€ even Mariah had not enticed me to learn…

  1. I knew someone would write about this song! Such an iconic 90s song. I remember when it came out, I was only in elementary school but it was on the radio all the time. It was used in commercials a lot.
