I've seen the rain pouring down
The sky was gray with a speck of blue
Peek through a hole in the clouds
The sun was screaming, "Hey, you!"

As you ramble through your sorrow
Seem like everything come out wrong
I'm living in yesterdays tomorrows
I know something's helping me along

I'll take a melody
And see what I can do about it
I'll take a simple C to G
And feel brand new about it

I understand why the old fishermen
Sail along, sail along, sail along
Sail along, sail along
Someday he'll be gone

I hear you talking about your troubles
Everybody's got their troubles too
You can make them burst like bubbles
If you know just what to do

You know I've been called a dreamer
Dreams that never come true
But I've been called so many things before
Tell you what I'm gonna do

I'll take a melody
And see what I can do about it
I'll take a simple C to G
And feel brand new about it

I understand why the old fishermen
Sail along, sail along, sail along
Sail along, sail along
Someday he'll be gone

I'll take a melody
And see what I can do about it
I'll take a simple C to G
And feel brand new about it

Shine on, keep on shining
Shine on, keep on shining
Shine on, keep on shining
...
