"Good Day Sunshine" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine.
I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about,
I feel good, in a special way.
I'm in love and it's a sunny day.

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine.
We take a walk, the sun is shining down,
Burns my feet as they touch the ground.

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine.
And then we lie, beneath a shady tree,
I love her and she's loving me.
She feels good, she knows she's looking fine.
I'm so proud to know that she is mine.

Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine.
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine.

    General CommentI can take it one of two ways: Either it being a love song to some one named Sunshine, or it is just saying what a great day, the sun is shinning, I'm in love, and walking with her in the sun, what could be better than this!

    General CommentThis song is DEFINITELY about LSD.

    No, every song from the Beatles is not about drugs, but this one is. It comes off of Revolver, an album devoted almost entirely to drugs. Liquid sunshine, orange sunshine, are names for LSD. It's funny - when people don't understand something, they rush to put other people down cause they want everything to fit their own world-view. Like "Gee, this can't be about drugs!!!!"

    Most of "Revolver" is about drugs:

    Doctor Robert (Drug dealer/supplier)
    Good Day Sunshine (Acid)
    Got to Get You Into my Life (Pot)
    Tomorrow Never Knows (Acid)

    etc.

    Or, should Paul have just said "I'm doing acid and it feels great?" No, the Beatles sure as hell couldn't just come out and say it. That's not to say that he very well could be outside on a beautiful, sunshiny day, and especially happy cause he's trippin...

    General CommentI don't think this song is necessarily about drugs. Why are people constantly convinced that every Beatles song is about drugs? Anyway, this is the first Beatles song I fell in love with, and it means a lot to me. I found it on a message board about songs that changed people's lives, and gave it a listen. I watched A Hard Day's Night this past Christmas, and I discovered the wonder of the Beatles. My musical taste is better for it.
