You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When sky's are grey
You'll never know, dear
How much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear

And I hung my head and cried

You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When sky's are grey
You'll never know, dear
How much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

Please don't take my sunshine away
