Mr. Sun





Oh, Mr. Sun, sun, Mr. Golden sun,
Please shine down on me.
Oh, Mr. Sun, sun, Mr. Golden sun,
Hiding behind a tree.
These little children are asking you,
To please come out so they can play with you,
Oh, Mr. sun, sun, Mr. Golden Sun,
Please shine down on me!

Won’t you please shine down on me.  (lower arms, point to self)
Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun, (hold arms above head in a circle)
Hiding behind a tree. (put hands in front of face)

To please come out, so we can play with you. (beckon with arm)
Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun,  (hold arms above head in a circle)
Please shine down on me.  (lower arms, point to self)
