That's the sound of sunshine going down
And that's the sound of sunshine going down

I wake up in the morning at 6 o'clock
They say there may be rain but the sun is hot
I wish I had some time just to kill today
And I wish I had a dime for every bill I got to pay

Some days you lose, you win
And the waters as high as the times you're in
So I jump back into where I learned to swim
Try to keep my head above it as best I can

That's why here I am
Just waiting for this storm to pass me by
That's the sound of sunshine going down
And that's the sound of sunshine going down

I saw my friend, Bobby, he said "What's up man?
You gotta little work or a twenty to lend?"
I opened up my hand, he said, "I'm glad to see
They can take away my job but not my friends, you see"

Here I am
Just waiting for this storm to pass me by
And that's the sound of sunshine going down
That's the sound of sunshine going down

And we say that's the sound of the sun going down
And the people of the world start to paint the town
The day that's long is a day complete
So kick of your shoes and relax your feet

They say that miracles are never ceasing
And every single soul needs a little releasing
They say that money makes the world go 'round
But only one thing will have the sun go down

Yes, sweet, sweet love will have sun go down
It's true, it's true, it's true
And that's the sound of sunshine going down
That's the sound of sunshine going down

And I say you're the one I want to be with
When the sun goes down
You're the one I want to be with
When the sun goes down

Singing hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu
Hallelujah, hallelu
You're the one I want to be with
When the sun goes down

That's the sound of sunshine going down
And that's the sound of sunshine going down
And all the people say
That's the sound of sunshine going down

So the moon can shine on you
So the moon can shine on you
So the moon can shine on you
So the moon can shine on you
