I wake up in the morning and it’s six o’clock

They say there may be 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’ve got to pay

 

Some days, you lose you win

And the water’s as high as the times you’re in

So I jumped back into where I learned to swim

Tried to keep my head above it the 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 coming down!

And that’s the sound, of sunshine coming down! (Down, down, down)

 

Hey, hey, hey… hey, hey, hey hey, hey, hey, hey

One, two, three, uh-huh

 

[Verse 2]

 

I saw my friend Bobby, he said “What’s up man?”

You got a little work or 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 coming down!

And that’s the sound, of sunshine coming down! (Down, down, down)

 

Hey, hey, hey… hey, hey, hey hey, hey, hey, hey

One, two, three, uh-huh

 

 

Yo, yo, here we go

I wanna go where the summer never ends

With the guitar on the beach there with all my friends

The sun’s so hot and the waves in motion

And everything smells like sun-tan lotion

The ocean, and the girls so sweet

So kick off your shoes and relax your feet

They say that miracles are never ceasin’

And every single soul needs a little releasin’

The stereo bumpin’ till the sun goes down

And I only wanna hear that sound!

 

That’s the sound, of sunshine coming down!

And that’s the sound, of sunshine coming down! (Down, down, down)

 

And I say

You’re the one I wanna be with (yo, yo), when the sun goes down

You’re the one I wanna be with (the one I wanna be with), when the sun goes down

Singing, you’re the one I wanna be with, when the sun goes down

You’re the one I wanna be with, when the sun goes down

 

And that’s the sound, of sunshine coming down!

And that’s the sound, of sunshine coming down! (Down, down, down)

 

Hey, hey, hey (when the sun goes down), hey hey hey hey hey hey hey

When the sun goes down!
