SUN COME UP
[ a song, folk-rock ]


                        Sun come up, sun go down
                        This ol’ world keeps spinning ‘round
                        Seem’s there’s nothin’ really new, under the sun
                        Everything we do ’as already been done

                        Sing yeah, yeah, yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah
                        Yeah, yeah, yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
                        Yeah, yeah, yeah

                        Sun go down, sun come up
                        Pour me a drink from that wisdom cup
                        Time of hate, time of war
                        Seems like this path’s been crossed before

                        Sing yeah, yeah, yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah
                        Yeah, yeah, yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
                        Yeah, yeah, yeah

                        Time of love, time of peace
                        When is all the killin’ goin’ to cease?
                        Seasons come and seasons go
                        Seems we’re bound to reap just what we sow

                        Sing yeah, yeah, yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah
                        Yeah, yeah, yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
                        Yeah, yeah, yeah

                        So many days and nights we've cried
                        Haven't these solutions already been tried?
                        Seem’s there’s nothin’ really new, under the sun
                        Everything we do ’as already been done

                        Sing yeah, yeah, yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah
                        Yeah, yeah, yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
                        Yeah, yeah, yeah
