Lyrics for You Are My Sunshine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
you make me happy when skies are grey,
you’ll never know, dear, how much I love you,
please don’t take my sunshine away.
The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I held you in my arms,
And now that you’re here
My dreams are waking
And I will keep you from all harm
I’ll always love you and make you happy
I’ll pick you up when you’ve fallen down
You turn my sky blue when it is raining
You always keep the sunshine around
