Now, me and this friend named, Streetlife Brown
We got a bottle of red and walked downtown
One hand on the jug and one on time
He said, "I bet you a dollar against this next line"

I said, "Dont let the sunshine fool ya
Dont let the bluebirds tool ya
Dont let the women do ya
Put your hand in mine"

Oh, advice is fine if youve got a mind
To listen to the end thats got the time
But the musell get ya if you dont watch out
Hes equipped to know what its all about

Dont let the sunshine fool ya
Dont let the bluebirds tool ya
Dont let the women do ya
Put your hand in mine

Oh, Fanon street in the afternoon is
An easy way to get out of tune
But the hard soap salesman, he said, "No dice"
When I asked politely for a better price

He said, "Dont let that sunshine fool ya
Dont let the bluebirds tool ya
Dont let the women do ya
Put your hand in mine"

Well, heres a song for you, child of mine
I hope you make it through this time
Get yourself a piece of that rainbow pie
No reason in the world you cant get by

But dont let the sunshine fool ya
And dont let the bluebirds tool ya
And dont let the women do ya
Put your hand in mine

Oh, dont let the sunshine fool ya
Dont let the bluebirds tool ya
Dont let the women do ya
Put your hand in mine

Oh, dont let the sunshine fool ya
