This song is known by everyone world wide, Susan's dad used to play it on the harmonica, and the possums love to have everyone sing along in concert, it's very heart warming


Beyond the night, dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamt I held you in my arms
But when I woke, dear, I was mistaken
and I hung my head, and cried

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 (chorus)

I'll always love you and make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me to love another,
You'll regret it all some day

You told me once dear you truly loved me
And no one else could come between
But now you've left me to love another
You have shattered all my dreams
