The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
But when I awoke dear, I was mistaken
And I hung my head and cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

I'll always love you and make you happy
If you could only say the same
But if you leave me, to love another
Well you'll regret it all someday

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

You told me once dear, that you really loved me
And no one else could come between
Well now you've left me, and love another
You have shattered all my dreams

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
Please don't take my sunshine away
