A song I start almost every night with, A cheery little look at life. It actually started with a routine from Richard Pryor. He had a character that talked about everything went black and when the sun came back, he reached and rubbed some sunshine on his face.

Lyrics

SUNSHINE ON YOUR FACE – Smonroe

I DON’T NEED YOUR INDECISION. I DON’T NEED YOUR COMPANY
I DO NOT WANT YOU TO FEEL SORRY, THAT’S THE LAST THING THAT I NEED
I DON’T WANT A CONVERSATION ABOUT HOW THINGS USED TO BE
TOMORROW’S AROUND THE CORNER AND THAT SOUNDS ALRIGHT TO ME

I DON’T NEED YOU TO KEEP AT ME. I DON’T NEED TO FEEL THE BURN
I’M JUST HAPPY TO KEEP AT IT AND GLADLY TAKE MY TURN
THERE’S A BUNCH OF FOOLS JUST LIKE ME WHO KNOW LIFE IS NOT A RACE
SO FIND WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY AND GET SOME SUNSHINE ON YOUR FACE

I WON’T USE MODERATION. I REFUSE TO BE DISCREET
DON’T WANT TO SIT IN SOMEONE’S POCKET AND BE A SCRET THAT THEY KEEP
I WANT THE SPOTLIGHT ON ME AND TO LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES
I KNOW THE CARDS ARE STACKED AGAINST ME AND THAT’S A CHANCE I LOVE TO TAKE

I DON’T NEED A POKING FINGER. I DON’T NEED TO SHOW RETURN
I’M JUST HAPPY TO KEEP AT IT AND GLADLY TAKE MY TURN
THERE’S A BUNCH OF FOOLS JUST LIKE ME WHO KNOW LIFE IS NOT A RACE
SO FIND WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY AND GET SOME SUNSHINE ON YOUR FACE

I WANT TO WATCH THE CLOUDS ROLL BY FEEL SUNLIGHT WARM MY SKIN
HEAR TREE LEAVES SING A CHORUS ORCHESTRATED BY THE WIND
STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES KNOW WHATEVER BENDS WON’T BREAK
ENJOY NEW LIFE’S AROMAS AND THE DIFFERENCE THIS ALL MAKES

I WON’T KEEP UP WITH THE JONES OR BE FILLED WITH CONCERN
I’M JUST HAPPY TO KEEP AT IT AND GLADLY TAKE MY TURN
THERE’S A BUNCH OF FOOLS JUST LIKE ME WHO KNOW LIFE IS NOT A RACE
SO FIND WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY AND GET SOME SUNSHINE ON YOUR FACE
FIND WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY AND GET SOME SUNSHINE ON YOUR FACE
