Not That Far Away

Sun behind green meadow

Yes, folks, it’s time for another piggy-back song!  I dedicate this to all my Chicago brothers and sisters, for their courage and stamina through this Winter That’s About to End.  I offer it with honor (and apologies) to musician Pharrell Williams.

SUNNY (sung to the tune of “Happy”)

It might seem early, but I learned today – we change our clocks next Saturday

I’m like a mole climbin’ out its hole – so free to catch every last sun ray

Because I’m happy!

Sing along if you feel like a day without an end

Because I’m happy

Sing along if you feel like the sun is your best friend

Because I’m happy

Sing along ‘cuz you know that spring will be here soon

Because I’m happy

Dance about it if you feel like that’s what you wanna do!

Ice and Snow Peaks

Old Man Winter’s claimin’ he ain’t done – braggin’ he’s gonna block out all the sun.

Well, we gonna warn him that his time is up – better back away ‘cuz we’ve had enough.

Because I’m happy

Sing along if you feel like a day without an end 

Because I’m happy

Sing along if you feel like the sun is your best friend

Because I’m happy

Sing along ‘cuz you know that spring will be here soon

Because I’m happy

Dance about it if you feel like that’s what you wanna do!

Sun on Snow 

Bring me down – cold temps can’t bring me down

The days are too long to bring me down

The sun is too high to bring me down

Snow’ll soon be gone – can’t bring me down.

Because I’m happy

Sing along if you feel like a day without an end

Because I’m happy

Sing along if you feel like the sun is your best friend

Because I’m happy

Sing along ‘cuz you know that spring will be here soon

Because I’m happy

Dance about it if you feel like that’s what you wanna do!

Sun behind green meadow

BELIEVE.
