Research Topic: You Are My Sunshine lyrics

By Ian Mander, 9 April 1999.

Question: Umm... I can't quite remember all the words in the chorus of You Are My Sunshine. For that matter, what were the rest of the words?

Answer: Well, here you go...


The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cried.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I miss you
Please don't take my sunshine away

I'll always love you and make you happy,
If you will only say the same.
But if you leave me to love another,
You'll regret it all some day:


You told me once, dear, you really loved me
And no one else could come between.
But now you've left me and love another;
You have shattered all my dreams:

Now isn't that interesting? Remember the Muppet's version?
