Good Day Sunshine, Enjoy Your Weekend

Hopefully we have more of this beautiful weather over the weekend.  After weeks of grey weather, lets enjoy some sun ‘n’ fun.

OJO: cuando pronuncias ‘sun’ y ‘fun’ se deberían rimar

To celebrate, lets listen to this classic beatles tune and review the lyrics.

Good Day Sunshine, The Beatles

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I’ve got something I can laugh about
I feel good in a special way
I’m in love and it’s a sunny day

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

We take a walk (as) the sun is shining down
(It) Burns my feet as they touch the ground

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine

Then we lie beneath a shady tree
I love her and she’s loving me
She feels good; she know she’s looking fine
I’m so proud to know that she is mine

Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
Good day sunshine
