WAITIN' ON A SUNNY DAY

Album version


It's raining but there ain't a cloud in the sky
Musta been a tear from your eye
Everything will be okay
Yeah, funny, thought I felt a sweet summer breeze
Musta been you sighing so deep
Don't worry we're gonna find a way

I'm waitin', waitin' on a sunny day
Gonna chase the clouds away
Yeah I waitin' on a sunny day

Without you I'm working with the rain falling down
I'm half a party in a one dog town
I need you to chase the blues away
Without you I'm a drummer girl that can't keep a beat
An ice cream truck on a deserted street
I hope that you're coming to stay

I'm waitin', waitin' on a sunny day
Gonna chase the clouds away
Waitin' on a sunny day

Yeah!

Go!

Hard times, baby, well they come to tell us all
Sure as the ticking of the clock on the wall
Sure as the turning of the night into day
Your smile, girl, brings the morning light to my eyes
Lifts away the blues when I rise
I hope that you're coming to stay

Because
I'm waitin', waitin' on a sunny day
Gonna chase the clouds away
Waitin' on a sunny day

Hey!
