"My Girl" as written by William Robinson Jr. and Ronald A White....
I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it's cold outside I've got the month of May
I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)

I've got so much honey the bees envy me
I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees
Well I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl ooh)

I don't need no money, fortune, or fame
I've got all the riches baby one man can claim
Well I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)

(Talkin' 'bout my girl my girl) I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
With my girl
I've even got the month of May
With my girl
Talkin' 'bout, talkin' 'bout

    General CommentI love it because it is simple, down to earth and great!It's basically tells the story of a person in love with a girl. And they're telling the story of what the girl brings to their life, i.e. "Sunshine on a cloudy day". It is an appreciation song and it's definitely on my Top 10 Favorite songs!

    **Damn those sweet memories**

    General CommentMy favourite song, Brings back memories of the movie "My Girl" ever since I was a little girl, sitting on a swing listening to my dad sing it to me as he pushed the swing, everytime I am on a swing I cannot help but sing this beautiful song. Want this played at my wedding when I'm dancing with my Dad

    General CommentMy dad used to hold me and dance to this song when I was a baby. I'm 41 now and it still effects me the same way. Without a doubt the best song ever recorded!
