Donovan Lyrics

by Happy Mondays

Six cheap people in an empty hotel
Every last one with a story to tell
Give them all pills, so their heads won't swell
We were borne to a woman whose husband did quite well

Oh, sunshine, shone brightly through my window today
Could have tripped out quite easy but I decided to stay

"Hold out your hand", said Whitey with the blame
"I'm gonna bring you up so you really dig the pain
Take you under my wings so you'll never be the same
'Cause your wife is so much older and both her legs are lame"

A sunbeam shone brightly through my window today
Could have gone twenty miles but I decided to stay

All my flock has packed up and flocked back to hell
Open up the doors so the place don't start to smell
Carry on with what your doing 'cause you don't to it that well
I've been umpteen different people and no one else can tell

Sunshine shone brightly through my asshole today
Could have tripped out quite easy, man but I decided to stay

Stay a while, stay a while
Come up and see me and make me smile
Come up and see me and make me smile
