Sunny
Boney M. Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain
The dark days are gone
And the bright days are here
My Sunny one shines so sincere
Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny, thank you for the sunshine bouquet (that sweet bouquet)
Sunny, thank you for the love you brought my way
You gave to me your all and all
Now I feel ten feet tall
Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny, thank you for the truth you let me see
Sunny, thank you for the facts from A to Z
My life was torn like a windblown sand
And the rock was formed when you held my hand
Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny

Sunny, thank you for the smile upon your face
Sunny, thank you for the gleam that shows its grace
You're my spark of nature's fire
You're my sweet complete desire
Sunny one so true, I love you

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain
The dark days are gone
And the bright days are here
My Sunny one shines so sincere
Sunny one so true, I love you

I love you (you're my baby)
I love you (Sunny)




I love you
I love you (Sunny)

My dad grew up during the Cultural Revolution in China. He was even in Beijing when Tiananmen happened. He said that everyone lived in poverty and his family could not afford things like a TV or Radio. Except he had a friend, who’s father was diplomat. His dad was able to bring back a cassette player, but only 1 cassette. That cassette was an album of hits by Boney M, so he and his friends listened to it everyday because that the only music they had. Fast forward 30 some years, we were sitting in the car, driving to Chicago and Sunny comes on the radio. Dude speaks really broken english but i was amazed that he knew all the lyrics. Ive never heard of Boney M before that moment

@dntlss

If it wasn't for that Old Navy commercial no one would be listening to this song,lol

@peachyrican1313

@@dntlss Thats not exactly true, because the song came out long before the commercial, years ago and many people loved it and still do. The commercial just revived a well loved and nostalgic song in this day and age.
