Woke up feeling good today Looked out my window You were walking my way Wind in your hair And a smile on your face My blues were gone Without a trace Oh, the darkness of Winter has gone Spring has finally come You can take my blues away You bring me sunshine everyday I'm sure that it's you who's the reason Why I'm so glad Oh, it's not just the season One look at you When you looked that way All the coldness melts away You can take my blues away And away they will always stay Cos with you I have to be You bring me sunshine Can't you see? There's rain outside And dark clouds up above I don't see them All I see is the love It's there in your eyes And a warmth from your touch You brought me the sunshine That I needed so much Oh, the darkness of Winter has gone Spring has finally come You can take my blues away and away they will always stay You bring me sunshine everyday You brought me the sunshine everyday Oh, yes you did! Everyday... you bring me sunshine everyday Everyday!

MR OPERATOR 04:44
It's early in the morning An' I'm sitting by the phone Nothing's on the TV Just reminds me I'm alone Another cup of coffee Maybe helps to pass the time While I'm sitting here just waiting At the end of the line Seems I can't stop thinking 'Bout those angry words we said and the sound of her slamming the door Keeps echoing round in my head Mr Operator, connect me if you can Tried all the usual numbers No one seems to know Can't think what to do now Where in the world would she go? Mr Operator, please connect me if you can I'd do anything at all This pain I can't withstand Seems I can't stop thinking 'Bout those angry words we said and the sound of her slamming the door Keeps echoing round in my head Mr Operator, connect me if you can Wanna get my baby back (get my baby) Wanna get my baby back (get my baby) Wanna get my baby back (get my baby) Wanna get my baby back (get my baby)

THE MEANING 05:08
You got my head a' reelin' With things I don't know about i got this funny feeling i could do without Since you left me, Baby Left me high and dry I sit alone each night And I wonder why What's it all about I guess I'll never know What's it all about No one seems to know I guess we'll never Never find the meaning No we'll never find no rhyme or reason No we'll never Never find the meaning Tryna find the reason Where did i go wrong Why you took to leaving Baby, why you've gone Why you've left this feeling Burning in my heart I love you till the end And i loved you from the start What's it all about I guess I'll never know What's it all about No one seems to know I guess we'll never Never find the meaning No we'll never find no rhyme or reason No we'll never Never find the meaning Ooh, Baby, Baby You know you drive me crazy You know I'm missing you And there's nothing that I can do I guess we'll never Never find the meaning No we'll never find no rhyme or reason No we'll never Never find the meaning

What will we do? What will we do? What will we do when the kettle boils over? In the US of A oh oh and in Eurasia There are some mad men Who wish to blow us all away, sir The world is so full of sorrow and uncertainty We must be concerned Oh oh there's so much to be learned They say that two and two is five And all that jive But we know that two and two is four we wanna make a little love not war And if I'm wrong then I stand accused Of loving you while the kettle boils over and over and over and over and over again I say What will we do? What will we do? What will we do when the kettle boils over? What will we do? What will we do? What will we do when the kettle boils over? Will the silicone chip stop the suffering and starvation in Africa Do the gentleman of the Pentagon know that There is no rice to save the babies in Ethiopia From the depths of my soul I search for an answer To the question of pain But when a smile like yours Makes me swift and sway I stand accused of loving you Of loving you while the kettle boils over and over and over and over and over again I say What will we do? What will we do? What will we do when the kettle boils over? What will we do? What will we do? What will we do when the kettle boils over?

SERIOUS 04:29
I know you need some time To be on your own just to think You're so important to me But I don't wanna watch you sink I know you get lonely I Can see it in your eyes So take a deep breath, Baby You must own up and get wise If it's serious Be honest with yourself Stand up and be loved Be good to yourself If it's serious Be honest with yourself Stand up and be loved Be good to yourself When you feel a little stronger Will you come on over to me? I won't ever hurt you, Darling Please don't try to fool me I know that you get lonely I Can see it in your eyes I'm confessing to you now, girl Oh, that without you I might die If it's serious Be honest with yourself Stand up and be loved Be good to yourself If it's serious Be honest with yourself Stand up and be loved Be good to yourself

There is a child somewhere Who could feel better There's a dream somewhere That could come true There is a grey day waiting Waiting to be brightened There is a hand to hold And not feel frightened There are some broken hearts That need mending There are some attitudes That need bending Don't have to move no mountain Just think what you could do! Remember the pleasure from a smile Oh, and think for a while Of all the things you can do Just give everything that is inside of you And give a little time For the children Let's sing Na na na na Na na na na na na na Na na na na Let's give a little more For the the children Let's sing Na na na na Na na na na na na na Let's do it right Na na na na Let's give a little more For the the children There is a heavy load Yeah, could be lightened On those dark nights Don't feel frightened There is some food somewhere Being wasted While there's caviar somewhere I know is being wasted! There is an empty soul Waiting for a hold Just a touch from you Could be like the dust of gold Don't have to move no mountain Just think what you could do! Remember the pleasure from a smile Oh, and think for a while yeah, yeah Of all the things you can do Just give everything that is inside of you Oh, and give a little time For the children Let's sing Na na na na Na na na na na na na Na na na na Let's give a little more For the the children Let's sing Na na na na Na na na na na na na Let's do it right Na na na na Let's give a little more For the the children

Every morning when I wake up I have to face another day Searching for that something That I just can't describe Can't move my head from this pillow Cos I'm so troubled in my mind Truth is that I'm lonely Yes, I am I'm tired and I'm sad And I've wasted Most of the time I've ever had Oh, but now I've found me Something beautiful I call it love Found me something quite beautiful Yes, it's love! Every evening when I break up I have to face another night Waiting for tomorrow When everything will seem alright Still can't move my head from this pillow Cos I'm so troubled in my mind The truth is that I'm lonely Yes, I am I'm tired and I'm sad And I've wasted Most of the time I've ever had Oh, but now I've found me Something beautiful I call it love Found me something quite beautiful Yes, it's love! I found me love Oh, yes I found me love Found me love Love, love, love, love, love Yes, it's good for me Good for my soul Said I found me love Oh, whoa, love Yes, I got love Sweet careless love Don'cha know I got love I'll say it again Love! I've got love, love, love, love, love! Mmmm Mmmm!
