  • I used to think maybe you loved me now, baby, I'm sure
    And I just can't wait 'til the day when you knock on my door
    Now every time I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
    'Cause I just can't wait 'til you write me you're coming around

    Now I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    And don't it feel good
    Hey, all right now
    And don't it feel good
    Hey, yeah

    I used to think maybe you loved me, now I know that it's true
    And I don't wanna spend my whole life just a-waiting for you
    Now I don't want you back for the weekend
    Not back for a day, no, no, no
    I said, baby, I just want you back
    And I want you to stay
    Oh, yeah

    Now I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    And don't it feel good
    Hey, all right now
    And don't it feel good
    Yeah, oh yeah
    And don't it feel good

    Walking on sunshine
    Walking on sunshine, yeah

    I feel alive, I feel the love, I feel the love that's really real
    I feel alive, I feel the love, I feel the love that's really real
    I'm on sunshine, baby, oh
    Oh yeah, I'm on sunshine, baby, oh

    I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    I'm walking on sunshine, whoa-oh
    And don't it feel good
    Hey, all right now
    And don't it feel good
    I'll say it, I'll say it, I'll say it again now
    And don't it feel good
    Hey, yeah now
    And don't it feel good
    Now don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it feel good
    I'll say it, I'll say it, I'll say it again now
    And don't it feel good
    Don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it, don't it and don't it feel good
    Now tell me, tell me, tell me again now
    And don't it feel good
    Oh yeah, now
    And don't it feel good
    Oh, don't it feel good, don't it feel good
    Now don't it feel good
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

  • George Pope from Vancouver BcYou don't usually see that kind of pure unchecked love & joy for a long distance love. She really conveys the feeling, though. Of someone who's been lonely, then she meets him, maybe as a pen pal, or early online Fidonet, perhaps (unlikely, as girls were excluded from modem clubs unless they were confirmed girlfriends--she seems to have bee lonely & lonesome when she meets Mr. X, of the long distance communication; someone who could convey his love(i.e. desperation) quite poetically, in a letter-it worked -- she was hooked on a feeling(sorry, wrong song) ); This song never fails to life my mood upwards, even before learning the meaning.
  • Rich from NmRon Dante, (of Archies 'Sugar, Sugar' fame) did an excellent version of this song!
  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenThis song was one of the medley my friend played at his wedding reception. I think the lyrics summed his (their) feelings up nicely!
  • Oto from SlovakiaIt's very catchy and its easy to identify with it....great song.
  • John from MassI could have sworn I heard this song much earlier than listed release date. Thought I heard it in 1980 or 1981.
  • Jir from London, United KingdomThis song screams out of my head sometimes when Im showering, and it really cheers me up!
  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxFor years I thought Rita Coolidge did this song, because their voices are rather similar.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhOne of the very, very best upbeat songs ever. You can't help but get cheered up any time you hear it! Also gotta sing along with the chorus! Timeless classic!
  • Alex from Boucherville (montreal), QcIt's Fry AND SEYMOUR THE DOG song! :O!!!!!
  • Michael from San Diego, CaI love this song, the whole first album by Kimberly & the Waves was pretty good. I didn't like most of their later stuff but this record, and especially this tune are timeless!
  • Mark from Lancaster, OhBack when Don Imus had a music show, I heard him read the rather overblown publicity release for this the first time he played it on WNBC. It made a funny bit of comedy on its own. And the song is simply cheerful.
