Lyrics I'M RECALLIN'
TIMES WHEN I WAS SMALL,
IN LIGHT AND FREE JUBILEE DAYS.
OLD FOLKS PRAYIN',
EV'RYBODY SWAYIN',
LOUDLY I CHANTED MY PRAISE.
HOW I SANG ABOUT THE JUDGEMENT MORN,
AND OF GABRIEL TOOTIN' ON HIS HORN.
IN THAT SUNNY
LAND OF MILK AND HONEY,
I HAD NO COMPLAINTS,
WHILE I THOUGHT OF SAINTS,
SO I SAY TO ALL WHO FEEL FORLORN:

SING HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!
AND YOU'LL SHOO THE BLUES AWAY
WHEN CARES PURSUE YA,
HALLELUJAH!
GETS YOU THROUGH THE DARKEST DAY.
SATAN LIES AWAITIN'
AND CREATIN' SKIES OF GRAY,
BUT HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!
HELPS TO SHOO THE BLUES AWAY.

Lyrics RISE 'N' SHINE,
STAND UP AND TAKE IT!
RISE 'N' SHINE,
LIFE'S WHAT YOU MAKE IT!
IF GLOOM,
THE SO-AND-SO,
SHOULD GET YOU
AS IT SOON DOES,
SHOUT HI-DE-HI-DE-HO!,
DO JUST AS THE MOON DOES!
RISE 'N' SHINE,
DON'T BE A MOURNER!
THINGS ARE FINE
AROUND THE CORNER!
NO HARM TO TRYING IT,
THERE'S NOTHIN' TO IT,
YOU CAN DO IT!
LIKE THE SUN,
RISE 'N' SHINE!

Lyrics [verse 1]:
(He:) EV'RY DAY
IT SEEMS LIKE A YEAR,
SWEETHEART,
WHEN YOU ARE NOT NEAR.
(She:) ALL THAT YOU CLAIM
MUST BE TRUE

FOR I'M JUST THE SAME AS YOU.

[Chorus]:
SOMETIMES I'M HAPPY,
SOMETIMES I'M BLUE,
MY DISPOSITION
DEPENDS ON YOU,
I NEVER MIND
THE RAIN FROM THE SKIES,
IF I CAN FIND
THE SUN IN YOUR EYES.
SOMETIMES I LOVE YOU,
SOMETIMES I HATE YOU,
BUT WHEN I HATE YOU,
IT'S 'CAUSE I LOVE YOU,
THAT'S HOW I AM,
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
I'M HAPPY
WHEN I'M WITH YOU.

[verse 2]:
(He:) STARS ARE SMILING AT ME
FROM YOUR EYES,
(She:) SUNBEAMS NOW
THERE WILL BE IN THE SKIES.
(He:) TELL ME
THAT YOU WILL BE TRUE!
(She:) THAT WILL ALL
DEPEND ON YOU,
DEAR!

[Chorus]:
SOMETIMES I'M HAPPY,
SOMETIMES I'M BLUE,
MY DISPOSITION
DEPENDS ON YOU,
I NEVER MIND
THE RAIN FROM THE SKIES,
IF I CAN FIND
THE SUN IN YOUR EYES.
SOMETIMES I LOVE YOU,
SOMETIMES I HATE YOU,
BUT WHEN I HATE YOU,
IT'S 'CAUSE I LOVE YOU,
THAT'S HOW I AM,
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
I'M HAPPY
WHEN I'M WITH YOU.
