“We’ll Sing in The Sunshine” Performed by Gale Garnett (1964)

July 16, 2012



#1 AC, #4 Pop, #43 Country

Next up in Grammy winning Contemporary Folk music we have the talented singer/songwriter/actress Gale Garnett performing her top ten hit “We’ll Sing in The Sunshine.”  “WSITS,” composed and recorded by Garnett on RCA Records, won the 1964 Grammy for Best Folk Performance or Recording.

The song charted in three categories but I only categorize it as really GOOD music that makes a body feel GREAT! You know it is GOOD when it is covered by many assorted County AND Pop artists over the decades.  ;-)

Miss Garnett continued to record through the decade of the Sixites — but “WSITS” was only chart-topping hit!

Sing along and enjoy.

We’ll Sing In The Sunshine Written by Gale Garnett

We’ll sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh every da-a-y
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

I will never love you
The cost of love’s too dear
But though I’ll never love you
I’ll stay with you one year

And we can sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh every da-a-y
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

I’ll sing to you each mornin’
I’ll kiss you every night
But darlin’, don’t cling to me
I’ll soon be out of sight

But we can sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh every da-a-y
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

My daddy he once told me
“Hey, don’t you love you any man”
“Just take what they may give you”
“And give but what you can”

“And you can sing in the sunshine”
“You’ll laugh every da-a-y”
“You’ll sing in the sunshine”
“Then be on your way”

And when our year has ended
And I have gone away
You’ll often speak about me
And this is what you’ll say

“We sang in the sunshine
“You know, we laughed every da-a-y”
“We sang in the sunshine”
“Then she went away”
