Didn't I tell you everything is possible 
In this deja vu?
Try the river boat, the carousel, 
feed the pigeons, Barbeque.

Look at all the people, happy faces all around
Smiling, throwing kisses, busy making lazy sounds

It's a bright June Afternoon, it never gets dark
Wah-Wah! Here comes the sun
Get your green green tambourine, let's play in the park
Wah-Wah! Here comes the sun

Some folks are on blankets, slowly daydreaming
And reaching for their food
Let's go buy an ice-cream
And a magazine with an attitude 

And put on a cassette, we can pretend that you're a star
'Cause life's so very simple, just like la-la-la

It's a bright June Afternoon, it never gets dark
Wah-Wah! Here comes the sun
Get your green green tambourine, let's play in the park
Wah-Wah! Here comes the sun, comes the sun

There's a painter painting his masterpiece
There's some squirrels jumping in the trees
There's a wide-eyed boy with a red balloon
All my life I've longed for this afternoon

It's a bright June Afternoon, it never gets dark
Wah-Wah! Here comes the sun
Get your green green tambourine, let's play in the park
Wah-Wah! Here comes the sun
