Where on Earth is Mr. Sun?
It’s now well into the afternoon!
I bet he’s having a long lie in
After partying with Mr. Moon.
Wake up lazy life-giver person
Please spare me from this rain!
You’ve been asleep for far too long
So hang your head in shame!
The flowers are watered well enough
And I’m soaked to the bone.
Because you’ve been asleep ’til now
I’ve had to stay at home.
Come on Mr. Sun, show us your face
The weather is just spiteful
I don’t want to see the face of rain
Because its face is frightful!
Mr. Sun get out of bed,
Wake up, come on out,
We all need light from time to time,
The dark we can do without.
To live, love, lose and laugh,
Essentially fruits of existence,
To dote, date, hate and die
Shows up our stubborn insistence.
