  • Six cheap people in an empty hotel
    Every last one with a story to tell
    Give them all pills, so their heads won't swell
    We were borne to a woman whose husband did quite well

    Oh sunshine, shone brightly
    Through my window today
    Could have tripped out quite easy but i decided to stay
    Hold out your hand said whitey with the blame
    Gonna bring you up so you really dig the pain
    Take you under my wings so you'll never be the same
    'cause your wife is so much older and both her legs are lame
    A sunbeam shone brightly through my window today
    Could have gone 20 miles but i decided to stay

    All my flock has packed up and flocked back to hell
    Open up the windows so the place don't start to smell
    Carry on with what your doing 'cause you don't to it that well
    I've been umpteen different people and no one else can tell

    Sunshine shone brightly through my asshole today
    Could have tripped out quite easy but i decided to stay
    To stay a while
    Come up and see me make me smile
    Come up and see me make me smile Writer/s: DONOVAN PHILLIPS LEITCH, GARY KENNETH WHELAN, MARK PHILIP DAY, PAUL ANTHONY RYDER, PAUL RICHARD DAVIS, SHAUN WILLIAM RYDER
