sunshine & teardrops lyrics – stompin’ tom connors

sunshine drys up the sidewalks and wipes all my teardrops away

i wheel my wheelchair to the window
and stare at the rain as it falls on the street
i wish in the gloom of my dark little room
that a ray from the sunshine would peep

because rain drops just like my tears
won’t let me watch the kids play
but sunshine drys up the sidewalks
and wipes all my teardrops away

it’s so good to see children like me
playing games on the street when it’s dried
they laugh and have fun
they skip and they run
and they make me feel happy inside

while rain drops just like my tears
won’t let me watch the kids play
but sunshine drys up the sidewalks
and wipes all my teardrops away

sometimes when i smile at the kids for awhile
they come up to my window to see
my funny wheelchair, and my legs that aren’t there
and they often pick flowers for me

until rain drops just like my tears
won’t let me watch the kids play
but sunshine drys up the sidewalks
and wipes all my teardrops away

tomorrow i know, i don’t want to go
with that lady who comes in the van
she’ll take me away, where children won’t play
near my sunshiny window again

and rain drops just like my tears
won’t let me watch the kids play
but sunshine drys up the sidewalks
and wipes all my teardrops away

sunshine drys up the sidewalks and wipes all my teardrops away.
