  • (Daddy what if the sun stop shinin' what would happen then)
    If the sun stopped shinin' you'd be so surprised
    You'd stare at the heavens with wide open eyes
    And the wind would carry your light to the skies
    And the sun would start shinin' again
    (Daddy what if the wind stopped blowin' what would happen then)
    If the wind stopped blowin' then the land would be dry
    And your boat wouldn't sail son and your kite wouldn't fly
    And the grass would see your troubles and she'd tell the wind
    And the wind would start blowin' again
    (But daddy what if the grass stopped growin' what would happen then)
    If the grass stopped growin' why you'd probably cry
    And the ground would be watered by the tears from your eyes
    And like your love for me the grass would grow so high
    Yes the grass would start growin' again
    (But daddy what if I stopped lovin' you what would happen then)
    If you stopped lovin' me then the grass would stop growin'
    The sun would stop shinin' and the wind would stop blowin'
    So you see if you wanna keep this old world a goin'
    You better start lovin' me again again you better start lovin' me again
    You hear me Bobby you better start lovin' me again
    You love me Bobby you better start lovin' me againWriter/s: SHEL SILVERSTEIN

  • Ariel from Home/lakebay, Wathis song made me and my dad cry
  • Mixermatt from Bloomington, MnOops, I have to open my eyes, it was not 1968 it was1973
  • Mixermatt from Bloomington, MnThe first time hearing the song it brought tears to my eyes and I was about the same age a Booby Bear Jr. And the was about around 68 or about the 1970's.
    As time went and I got older, and the tune " Daddy What If " was stuck back in my mind. With luck and for the love of music I have I was able to track down this great tune by a farther and son.
