Was a Sunny Day
Paul Simon Lyrics


Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heard
From the people passing by
Was a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radio's singing song
All the favorite melodies

He was a navy man
Stationed in Newport news
She was a high school queen
With nothing left to lose

Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heard
From the people passing by
Was a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radio's singing song
All the favorite melodies

Her name was Lorelei
She was his only girl
She called him Speedoo
But his christian name
Was Mr. Earl

Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heard
From the people passing by
Was a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radio's singing song
All the favorite melodies

Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heared
From the people's passing by
Was a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radio's singing song
All the favorite melodies

He was a navy man
Stationed in Newport News
She was a high school queen
With nothing really left to lose

Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heared
From the people's passing by
Was a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radio's singing song
All the favorite melodies

Her name was Lorelei
She was his only girl
She called him Speedoo
But his Christian name
Was Mr.Earl

Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heared
From the people's passing by
Was a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radio's singing song
All the favorite melodies

The Cadillacs. I was so pleased when I made that connection. I only heard Speedoo a year or so ago.

We had an uncle Speed in our family's earlier days, as well. Well loved and respected... ! I think of him and my grandmother, and the bond I could see between them, as siblings, when I hear this tune.

This is the lullaby I would sing my daughters when they were the age for lullabies.

This is one of the very first LPs I bought around the beginning of my teen years. Glad I did so.
