  • I hope you're not a butterfly
    Who's gonna spread it's wings and fly away,
    Yeah-ee-yeah-ah
    I hope you're not the moving type
    Who's gonna up and pack and walk away

    I need you to be there
    To treat me like you care
    I need you to be where
    Anywhere I need you
    I need you to myself
    Not layin' with anyone else
    I need you next to me for always

    Could you be my sunshine
    (Could you be my sunshine)
    On a cloudy day
    (On a cloudy day)
    Could you be my yellow
    (Could you be my yellow)
    When I'm feeling gray
    (When I'm feeling gray)

    I hope you're not the type to jump into the car
    And twist the key goodbye oh-oh-ah-oh
    I hope you're not the type that's quick to say goodbye
    And not give it a chance yeah-yeah-e-yeah

    I need you to be there
    To treat me like you care
    I need you to be where
    Anywhere I need you
    I need you to myself
    Not layin' with anyone else
    I need you next to me for always

    Could you be my sunshine
    (Could you be my sunshine)
    On a cloudy day
    (On a cloudy day)
    Could you be my yellow
    (Could you be my yellow)
    When I'm feeling gray
    (When I'm feeling gray)

    Could you be my river
    And help me float away
    Could you be my sunshine
    On a cloudy day

    Could you be my sunshine
    (Could you be my sunshine)
    On a cloudy day
    (On a cloudy day)
    Could you be my yellow
    (Could you be my yellow)
    When I'm feeling gray
    (When I'm feeling gray)

    Could you be my river
    And help me float away
    Could you be my sunshine
