Don't Let The Sunshine Fool You Lyrics

Don't Let The Sunshine Fool You - Guy Clark

Me and a friend name a Streetlife Brown

We got a bottle of red and we walked uptown

One hand on a jug and one on time

And he bet me a dollar against this next line

He said “Don't let the sunshine fool you

And don't let the bluebirds tool ya

And don't let the women do ya

Put your hand in mine”

 

Well advice is fine if you've got a mind

To listen to the end that's got the time

But the muse'll get ya if you don't look out

'Coz she's equipped to know what it's all about

She said “Don't let the sunshine fool you

And don't let the bluebirds tool ya

And don't let the women do ya

Put your hand in mine”

 

Fanon Street on an afternoon

Such an easy way to get it to

But the hard soap salesman said no dice

When I asked politely for a better price

He said “Don't let the sunshine fool you

And don't let the bluebirds tool ya

And don't let the women do ya

Put your hand in mine”

 

So here's a song for you child of mine

And I hope you make it through this time

Get yourself a piece of that rainbow pie

Ain't no reason in the world you can't get by boy

Don't let the sunshine fool you

And don't let the bluebirds tool ya

And don't let the women do ya

Put your hand in mine

Don't let the sunshine fool you

And don't let the bluebirds tool ya

And don't let the women do ya

 

Put your hand in mine
