“Yellow is the color of my true love’s hair
In the mornin’, when we rise

That’s the time, that’s the time
I love the best”

Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own”.

“Sunny, Yesterday my life was filled with rain.
Sunny, You smiled at me and really eased the pain.
The dark days are gone, and the bright days are here,
My Sunny one shines so sincere.
Sunny one so true, I love you.”
