This country song makes a fine lullaby or it can be an upbeat dancing song. You can change the last two lines if you want to—the song can have a happy ending.
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know dear how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away.
The other day dear, while I was sleeping
I dreamt I held you in my arms
When I awoke dear I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cried.
