Oh, they tell me that into each life
Some rain has sure got to fall
Oh, they tell me that everybody
has sure, has sure got to cry sometime
And, oh, if some rain, if some rain
has got to fall on everybody
And I've had enough rain in my life
Then I'm so glad right now
I got a little love around me
To keep the rain off my head, yeah, yeah

And I believe it's, I believe it's,
I believe it because (tell me why do you believe?)
I believe because on the other night, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you, I held you in my arms, yeah
But when I woke up and found out I was mistaken, yeah
You know that I hung my head, and I cried
Baby, baby, baby, you are my sunshine
You sure make me happy, baby when the skies are grey
And you'll never, never, never know how much I need you
I don't want you to take my sunshine away

You told me once you did, that you really loved me
And no one else could ever,
could ever come between, yeah
But now you're thinking about leaving me
For another, yeah
If you do you know you're gonna shatter,
shatter every one of my dreams

Because baby, baby, baby, baby you are my sunshine
You sure make me good and happy when the skies are grey
And you'll never never never know how much I need you
I don't want you to take my
Baby don't you take my
You promise me
That you'll never never never never, never leave me
You promise me
That you'll never never never deceive me
Good God almighty, don't let him, don't let him take it away
Hey, baby , ad lib to fade
