“Sunny Girlfriend” Lyrics

She owns and operates her own sunshine factory
Painting smiles on dolls and then on me
She’s my sunny girlfriend and personality

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

While I am sleeping
Then she comes creeping
Into my thoughts at night
Gazing down through eyes as bright as wonder

She can send you on your way to everywhere
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. And now pretty Peter, the man with the gabardine voice. Asking—
Peter: Gabardine?! What is that, “gabardine”? What is that, “gabardine voice”? Man with the rayon acetate throat. Heh heh heh, heh heh.
Micky: Asking that musical question, “Auntie Grizelda”.
