From the album the hurdy gurdy man

The sun is a very magic fellow
He shines down on me each day-ay-ay-ay.
The sun is a very magic fellow
He shines down on me each day-ay-ay-ay
He shines down on me each day.
The wind is a very fickle fellow
He blows all my dreams away-ay-ay-ay.
The wind is a very fickle fellow,
Blowing all my dreams away-ay-ay-ay
Blowing all my dreams away.
The rain is a very sad lady,
She falls down on me sometimes.
The rain is a very sad lady,
She falls down on me sometimes,
Falling down on me sometimes.
The sea is a very, very old man,
Deeper than the deepest blue.
The sea is a very, very old man,
Deeper than the deepest blue,
Deeper than the deepest blue.
The moon is a typical lady,
I watch her wax and wane.
The moon is a typical lady,
I watch her wax and wane,
I watch her wax and wane.
A star is so very far away, love,
Just between you and me.
A star is so very far away, love,
Just between you and me,
Just between you and me.
A girl is a pillow for my sadness,
She sings all my cares away.
A girl is a pillow for my sadness,
Sings all my cares away-ay-ay-ay,
Sings all my cares away.
Singing all my cares away-ay-ay-ay,
Sing all my cares away.
Loving all my cares away-ay-ay-ay,
She sings all my cares away.
Singing all my cares away-ay-ay-ay,
Singing all my cares
