    Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
    Everything that’s wonderful is what I feel
    when we’re together,
    Brighter than a lucky penny,
    When you’re near the rain
    cloud disappears, dear,
    And I feel so fine
    just to know that you are mine.

    My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
    That’s how this refrain goes,
    so come on, join in everybody!

    Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
    Everything that’s wonderful
    is sure to come your way
    When you’re in love to stay.
