Who loves the sun?
Who cares that it makes plants grow?
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart?

Who loves the wind?
Who cares that it makes breezes?
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart?

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Not everyone
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?

Who loves the rain?
Who cares that it makes flowers?
Who cares that it makes showers
Since you broke my heart?

Who loves the sun?
Who cares that it is shining?
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart?

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Not everyone
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, sun

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Not just anyone
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?

    General CommentIt's like the ultimate pessimist anthem.

    General CommentI kind of disagree that the songwriter himself is being pessimistic here. I think it's more of a tongue-in-cheek message about how some people are only concerned with their own problems when they have a broken heart.

    General CommentI had never thought that it was a burn on the Beatles but now that you mention it...

    I had always thought they were making fun of the Beach Boys for some reason but The Beatles makes much more sense. Love this song, the cough freaks me out and the chorus is so great.

    General Commentyeah they someone coughs! which only adds to the dreadful and so far never repeated pessimism of the song, disguised by the happy beatlesy melody. i adore it.

    General CommentThis song is amazing because the beat throws you off. It's one of the saddest VU songs.

    General CommentYes, it is a very pessimist song even though it's a fun melody. It really seems like there is somebody coughing at minute 1:05/06 !

    General CommentThis song sounds eerily like the Beatles "Here comes the sun", it seems to me that the entire album "Loaded" is maybe an attack on the Beatles
