You are my sunshine,
My lovely sunshine,
You make me happy,
When skies are gray,
You'll never know dear,
How much I love you,
Please don't take my sunshine away.
You sing this lullaby through soprano lips,
That's been passed down to me,
Along with fiery hair,
And a fierce temper of a sharp tongue.
You call me your sunshine,
But you are my sun,
My guiding light when I'm lost in the dark.
Your firm and now fragile arms wrap around me,
But you still keep me from burying my head,
And wishing everything will just turn okay overnight.
So you'll never know how much I love you,
And I beg,
That no one will take you from me.
