The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
Oh I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
Do you know that I hung my
Oh my head and I cried

Oh you are my sunshine, my only sunshine
Girl, you make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never never never know, how much I love you
But don't you to take my sunshine away

You told me once, dear, that you really loved me
And no one else could ever come between
But not you've left me and you love another
And you have shattered all my dreams

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

If you love me
If you need me
If you want me

I don't want you to take
I don't want you to take
My sunshine away
