"All I Dream Of is a Friend" is a song by Andy Partridge. It is one of five songs Andy recorded for Disney's James and the Giant Peach before he was rejected in favor of Randy Newman. It appeared on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 4 in 2003.

QuotesEdit

Andy: “Yet another piece of James and the Giant Peach flotsam. This is James' poor me song, you know, sat alone in room, looking out of window wistfully. A tad autobiographical for me as an only child. I tried to re-write it as a song for XTC, calling it ‘The Living Room’ but it never felt as good. Just like Popeye, it am what it am. Dig the picardy third though.”

LyricsEdit

Darkness wraps her gloves around my room and lonely bed

Loom of stars will weave a rug of thoughts inside my head


I don't dream of cakes and candies or to know where fairyland is

There is only one thing you can send

All I dream of is a friend


Clouds like purple boats will drift across the heaven's dish

Fast asleep I'll float each night to find my hidden wish


I don't dream of buried treasure or of riches beyond measure

There is only one thing you can send

All I dream of is a friend


Friends are there for you to trust

Friends are there to joke and laugh with

Light a smile when things get tough,

to illuminate your path with


I don't dream of magic castles

or of piles of Christmas parcels

There is only one thing you can send

All I dream of is a friend


I don't dream of ice cream canyons

All my thoughts are of companions

There is only one coin you can spend

All I dream of is a friend
