(Shel Silverstein)
Bill Anderson & Susan Breast

(Daddy, what if the sun stop shinin'?)
(What would happen then?)

If the sun stopped shinin'
Why you'd be so surprised
You'd stare up at the heavens
With those big blue eyes.

And the wind would carry
All of your light up to the skies
And the sun would start shinin' again
(And the sun would start shinin' again.)

(But daddy, what if the wind stopped blowin'?)
(What would happen then?)

If the wind stopped blowin'
Then the land would be dry
And your boat wouldn't sail
And your kite wouldn't fly.

And the grass would see
all of your troubles and she'd tell the wind
And the wind would start blowin' again
(And the wind would start blowin' again.)

(But daddy, what if the grass stopped growin'?)
(What would happen then?)

If the grass stopped growin'
Why you'd probably cry
And the ground would be weathered
By the tears from your eyes.

And then like your love for me
The grass would grow so high
Yes, the grass would start growin' again
(Yes, the grass would start growin' again.)

(But daddy, what if I stopped lovin' you?
(What would happen then?)

If you stopped lovin' me
Then the grass would stop growin'
The sun would stop shinin'
And the wind would stop blowin'.

So honey, if you want
To keep this old world a goin'
Well, you better start lovin' me again (again)
You better start lovin' me again

(But I love you, daddy.)
You do?
you mean you were just teasin' me?
(I was just teasin'.)
Well, come o'er put your arms around me
I'll tell you a story. (I'm sorry...)
This song is from the album "Love Is a Sometimes Thing [Decca]".
