I'm gonna take myself a piece of sunshine
And paint it all over my sky
Be no rain
Be no rain

I'm gonna take the song from every bird
And make em sing it just for me
Bird's got something to teach us all
About bein' free, yeah
Be no rain
Be no rain

And I think I'll call it morning
From now on
Why should I survive on sadness
And tell myself I got to be alone
Why should I subscribe to this world's madness
Knowing that I've got to live on ( 3 times)
Yeah I think I'll call it morning
From now on

I'm gonna take myself a piece of sunshine
And paint it all over my sky
Be no rain
Be no rain

I'm gonna take the song from every bird
And make em sing it just for me
Cause why should I hang my head
Why should I let tears fall from my eyes
When I've seen everything there is to see
And I know there is no sense in crying
I know there ain't no sense in cryin'
Yeah I think I'll call it morning
From now on
I'll call it morning from now on, yeah

Cause there ain't gonna be no rain
Be no rain
Be no rain
From now on
