The Sound of Sunshine
by Michael Franti



I wake up in the morning, it's 6 o'clock.
They say it may 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 in where I learned to swim.
Try to keep my head above as best I can.

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

I saw my friend ,Bobby, he said
"what's up man?
you got a little work of 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."

And here I am just waiting for this storm to pass me by
And that's the sound of sunshine comin down

Yo,yo here we go
I want ot go where the summer never ends
With my guitar on the beach, there with all my friends
The sun so hot and the waves in motion
And everything smells like suntan lotion

The ocean and the girls so sweet
So kick off your shoes and relax your feet

They say that miracles are never ceasing
And every little soul needs a little releasting
The sterio bumpin' till the sun goes down

And I only want to hear that sound
And that's the sound of sunshine comeing down
And that's the sound of sunshine comeing down

And now you 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

Sing , 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

That's the sound of sunshine comeing down
And that's the sound of sunshine comeing down
When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
when the sun goes dowm
