"Always The Sun" as written by and Hugh Alan/duffy Cornwell....
How many times have you woken up and prayed for the rain?
How many times have you seen the papers apportion the blame?
Who gets to say?
Who gets to work and who gets to play?
I was always told at school, everybody should get the same

How many times have you been told if you don't ask you don't get?
How many lads have taken your money, your mother said you shouldnt bet
And who has the fun?
Is it always a man with a gun?
Someone must have told you, if you work too hard you can sweat

There's always the sun
Mm-hmm, there's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

How many times has the weatherman told you stories that made you laugh?
You know it's not unlike the Politicians and leaders, when they do things by half
Who gets the job
Of pushing the knob?
That sort of responsibility, you draw straws for it if you're mad enough

There's always the sun (always the sun)
Mm-hmm, there's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

There's always the sun (always the sun)
Mm-hmm, there's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

There's always the sun (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

(Always the sun)
(Always the sun)
There's always the sun (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

There's always the sun (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

    General CommentSomethings never change. And, that can be a good thing when see bickering politicians, kids being treated unfairly in school, lose your money gambling, passed up on a good job....when all else fails, there is always the sun.

    General CommentI think this song means that there is always good in everything in the world.

    Or it could mean there is always something else worse like The Sun newspaper.

    MemoryI've heard this song many times, but today as I heard it on the radio I noticed that I was singing "it's always the same" and the song suddenly got a totally different feeling.

    General Commenthe makes references to inequality, a seeming unfairness in life. Yet we all share the same Sun, it's the source of all life and nobody gets 'more' of it than anyone else. Lots of uplifting songs about religion (which I am not), this may be the pagan equivalent.

    Song MeaningThere's always the sun.

    "Who gets to say? Who gets to work and who gets to play?"
    "And who has the fun? Is it always the man with the gun?"
    "Who gets the job of pushing the knob?"

    It doesn't matter, on the scale of things all is insignificant.
    Because in the end, there will always be the great leveller.
    The sun.
