“Sunny Girlfriend” Lyrics

Well, she owns and operates her own sunshine factory, yep, doo-bop, yep
Painting smiles on dolls and then on me, doo-bops around
She’s my sunny girlfriend and personality-ty-ty

Well, she’s got a book that tells about everybody’s past, yes, she does, it’s a book, and it can tell about everybody’s past
And she can make you slow while making your mind move fast, make you slow while making your mind move fast
Well, she’s my sunny girlfriend, and she is never last

While I am sleeping, shoo-bop-a-bop, shoo-bop-a-bop, daa
Then she comes creeping
Into my thoughts at night, yea-ah
Gazing down through eyes as red as thunder

Well, she can send you on your way to everywhere, woo
And she’s only started after you think that she is there
Well, she’s my sunny girlfriend, and she just doesn’t care
Well, she’s my sunny girlfriend, she doesn’t really care

Micky: Thank you.
Peter: We’d like to take this opportunity to say, which Michael gave me, we’d like to take this opportunity to tell you all that we love you, each and every one.
Micky: Thank you very much.
Peter: Even the officers.
Micky: And now, the man with the gabardine voice…
Peter: Hello officers!
Mike: I love everybody except the third person from the back.
Peter: Even the Portland police. Hey listen, we understand you don’t, you weren’t supposed to bring cameras—
Micky: Hey Ric!
Peter: —and we want to tell you that next time you’re not supposed to bring cameras, bring ’em anyway and revolt if they tell you to take it out, take ’em away.
Mike: Kodak Instamatic’s where it’s at, baby.
Peter: Yeah, Kodak Instamatic is where it’s at.
Mike: Polaroid Land Cameras, swingers, that kind of thing.
Peter: Swingers, that’s where it’s at, man, cameras, yeah.
Mike: Bring them all, man. Put guns inside them.
Micky: And now, the man with the gabardine voice—
Peter: Actually, Michael—
Micky: —will sing that never to be forgotten song, asking the musical question.
