It's getting hot in here.

Bring me sunshine in a cup and I will return the favor with something good to eat. Or a sentimental smile. Or clap my hands together gleefully.

Bring me sunshine in a cup and I will be grateful if the winter's too long. Or my flowers aren't thriving. Or my toes just can't get warm.

Bring me sunshine in a cup and I think of faraway places like Carlsbad. Or big boats sailing the Caribbean. Or island hammocks.

Bring me sunshine in a cup because I like to hold babies. And put stickers on bitty fists of littles. And have kittens curl into my neck for naps.
