Ain't no way to explain or say
How painful the hangover was today
In front of the toilet, hands and knees
Trying to breathe in between the dry heaves
My baby made me some coffee
Afraid that if I drink some it's probably coming right back out me
Couple of Advil, relax and chill
Had to stand still with how bad I feel
I think I need to smell fresh air
So I stepped out the backdoor and fell down the stairs
The sunlight hit me dead in the eye like
It's mad that I gave half the day to last night
The bad sight made me trip on my ass right into that patch of grass like that's life
All of a sudden I realize something
The weather is amazing, even the birds are bumpin'
Stood up took a look and a breath and there's that bike that I forgot that I possessed
Never really seen exercise as friendly
But I think something's telling me to ride that ten-speed
The brakes are broken, that's alright
The tires got air and the chain seems tight
Hopped on and felt the summertime
It reminds me of one of them Musab lines like

Chorus 2x:
Sunshine, sunshine is fine
I feel it in my skin, warmin' up my mind
Sometimes you've got to give in to win
I love the days when it shines
Whoa let it shine

If I could I would keep this feeling in a plastic jar
Bust it out whenever someone's acting hard
Settle down barbecue in the backyard
The kids get treats and old folks get classic cars
Everyday that gets to pass is a success
And every woman looks better in a sundress
The sunshine's an excuse to shoot hoops
Get juice, show and prove them moves and let loose
I hear voices, I see smiles to match them
Good times and you can feel it in the fashion
Even though the heat cooks up the action
The streets still got butterflies and enough kids to catch em'
Riding my bike around these lakes man
Feelin' like I finally figured out my escape plan
Take it all in the day started off all wrong
But somehow now that hangover is all gone
Ain't nothing like the sound of the leaves
When the breeze penetrates these southside trees
Leanin' up against one watching the vibe
Forgettin' all about the stress, thankin' God I'm alive
It's so simple
I had to keep the song simple
And when I get home I'm gonna open all the windows
Feelin' alright stopped at a stop sign
A car pulled up bumpin' Fresh Prince's Summertime

Chorus 2x:
Sunshine, sunshine is fine
I feel it in my skin, warmin' up my mind
Sometimes you've got to give in to win
I love the days when it shines
Whoa let it shine

    General CommentIt's about using weed to cure a hangover, he talks about the hangover then there's this line "The bad sight made me trip on my ass right into that patch of grass like that's life
    All of a sudden I realize something" Everything turns around for him after he stumbled in some "grass", another word for marijuana.
