I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it's cold outside, I got the month of May

I guess you'll say
What can make me feel this way?

My girl, my girl
Talking about my girl

I've got so much honey, the bees envy me
I've got a sweeter song, baby, than the birds in the trees

Hey, hey, hey

I don't need no money or count my pay
I've got all the riches, baby, one man can take

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
I've even got the month of May
My girl
I'm talking about my girl
