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 times have you wasted your money? your Mother said you shouldnt bet.
Who has the fun?
Is it always a man with a gun?
How many times have you been told if you work to hard you can sweat?

There's always the sun.
mmmm
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 its not upto the Politicians and leaders, when they do things by
halves.
Who gets the job?
Of pushing the knob.
Thats what responsibility you draw straws for if your mad enough.

There's always the sun.
mmmm
There's always the sun.
Always, always,always the sun.

There's always the sun.
mmmm
There's always the sun.
Always, always,always the sun.

    General Comment:I 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.

    Memory:I'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.
