WAKE UP SUNSHINE

©1979 – music and words by John R. Black, ℗ 42nd Street Music Seattle

I woke up early in the mornin’ 

Lookin’ for the sun to come through 

Golden flowers with ripe young faces 

Heaven filled with mornin’, mornin’ dew 

I walked out early in the mornin’  

Just when old rooster sent his call 

Tellin’ me this was the mornin’ 

Just when old rooster sent his call 

Tellin’ me this was the mornin’ 

Not to plan on sunshine at all 

Wake up, wake up sunshine 

Wake up, are you waitin’ for me 

Can you understand 

Why my whole life 

Keeps passing me on by 

Wake up, are you ready to love me 

Oh, oh, oh 

Why does my sunshine only shine a little while 

Now I’m back at the beginning 

Of this mornin’ that I woke up to  

It seems loves circle is never ending 

And sunshine has a hard time shinin’ through 

Wake up, wake up sunshine 

Wake up, are you waitin’ for me 

Can you understand 

Why my whole life 

Keeps passing me on by 

Wake up, are you ready to love me 

Oh, oh, oh 

Why does my sunshine only shine a little while 

Sunshine of my life 

Keep on shinin’, shinin’ down on me 

Sunshine of my life 

I hear the wind hummin’ this melody 

Wake up, wake up sunshine 

Wake up, are you waitin’ for me 

Can you understand 

Why my whole life 

Keeps passing me on by 

Wake up, are you ready to love me 

Oh, oh, oh 

Why does my sunshine only shine a little while 

Keep on shinin’ sunshine 

Keep on shinin’ sunshine 

Keep on shinin’ sunshine of my life
