"Captain Sunshine" as written by and Neil Diamond....
Captain Sunshine, make me drink wine,
Make me feel fine when I'm feelin' wrongly down.
He don't take much, he don't make much,
But ah, to be such a man as he,
And walk so pure between the earth and the sea.
Captain Sunshine, he do me fine,
Make the words rhyme when he knows the tune is sad.

He don't take much, he don't make much,
But ah, to be such a man as he,
And walk so pure between the earth and the sea.
He don't take much, he don't make much,
But ah, to be such a man as he,
And walk so pure between the earth and the sea.

    General CommentWell, I don't know this for certain, but my theory is that this song is about Jesus.

    Jesus, being Captain Sunshine, makes him drink wine. I don't think that this wine-drinking is in order to get drunk, or get a buzz on. I believe that the wine is Holy Communion.

    "Walk so pure between the earth and the sea" Jesus was the only one who lived pure, without sin, in His lifetime on earth.

    I don't exactly know Neil Diamond's beliefs, so I could be totally off, but that's what this song means to me.
