Lyrics
Ooh
Woke up this mornin' to a perfect day
I opened my window, heard a sparrow say "tweety dee dee"
Positive thoughts are runnin' through my mind
Nothin' is wrong, feelin' real strong
'Cause a new day is comin'

The sun is shining, no clouds in view
Lovers are holdin' hands, the world's brand new
Everybody's smiling, summer's comin' through
But the only thing that's missing is you
(Only thing that's missing is you)

I see your smile through your photograph (through you photograph)
The thing that you said still makes me laugh (laugh)
Deep inside, I'm on the edge of tears
But I can't be cryin', sittin' around sighin'
Just 'cause you're not here

The sun is shining (sun is shining), no clouds in view
Lovers are holdin' hands, the world's brand new
Everybody's smiling, summer's comin' on through
But the only thing that's missing
The only thing that's missing

Baby, baby, show me what do you do, when love is gone
You count your blessings and you move on (and you move on)
No, I ain't lonely (no I ain't lonely), this ain't no sad song
There's just one contradiction, I can't stand to be alone

The sun is shining (oh come and get me baby), no clouds in view (in view)
Lovers are holdin' hands (lovers are holdin' hands), the world's brand new
Yeah, the world's brand new
Everybody's smiling (everybody's smilin')
Summer's comin' through (summer's comin' on through)
But the only thing that's missing is you
The only thing, the only thing
Only thing that's missin' is you

The sun is shining (yeah), no clouds in view (in view)
Lovers are holdin' hands (lovers are holdin' hands), the world's brand new
The world's brand new
Everybody's smiling (everybody's smilin')
Summer's comin' through (summer's comin' on through)
But the only thing that's missing is you
The only thing, the only thing that's missing (baby) is you

But the only thing that's missing is you
The only thing that's missing is you
