"Sunny Skies" as written by and James Taylor....
Sunny Skies sleeps in the morning
He doesn't know when to rise
He closes his weary eyes upon the day
Look at him yawning
Throwing his morning hours away
He knows how to ease down slowly
Everything is fine in the end
And you will be pleased to know
That Sunny Skies hasn't a friend

Sunny Skies weeps in the evening
It doesn't much matter why
I guess he just has to cry from time to time
Everyone's leaving
And Sunny Skies has to stay behind

Still he knows how to ease down slow, no
Everything is fine in the end
And you will be pleased to know
That Sunny Skies hasn't a friend

Sunny skies sleeps in the morning
He doesn't know when to rise
He closes his weary eyes upon the day
And throws it all away

Looking at the snow and trees that grow
Outside my window
Looking at the things that passed me by
Wondering if where I've been is worth
The things I've been through
Ending with a friend named Sunny Skies

    My InterpretationSunny Skies seems pretty contradictory to his name. He's friendless and weepful. The song's cheery tune also is contradictory to the sad lyrics.
    I think that Sunny Skies could be "happiness." A lot of the time, we tend to weep and cry, throwing away our days to these actions and to depression. We as humans cling to sadness, for whatever reason, we do. Instead of not letting Sunny Skies or "happiness" rise, we should make happiness our friend.
