I have no idea.

This is a part of classic song.

Is "Not a dream will I have left" "Not a dream / will I have left" or "Not a dream will / I have left"?

Is "will i have left" a form of future perfect's question?

It's an alternative way of saying

I will not have a dream left.

These are the exact same words in a different order, presumably for artistic effect. As you can see it's a statement not a question. It's not in the future perfect, it's in the oft-called "simple future."

    We call this "artistic license" ... in poems and songs we sometimes arrange the words in a non-standard order. – GEdgar Feb 5 '18 at 11:38
