Thursday VIDEO Spotlight - Open Up Your Heart And Let The Sunshine In





This is one of my absolute childhood favorites, and I am certain it is also one of yours. But have you ever really listened to the words? As a child I didn't... I only knew that I loved the song and now I know why!

Open up your heart and let the sunshine in!





Mommy told me something 
a little kid should know. 
It's all about the devil 
and I've learned to hate him so. 
She said he causes trouble 
when you let him in the room. 
He will never ever leave you 
if your heart is filled with gloom. 

So let the sun shine in 
face it with a grin. 
Smilers never lose 
and frowners never win. 
So le the sun shine in 
face it with a grin 
Open up your heart and let the sun shine in. 

When you are unhappy, 
the devil wears a grin 
But oh, he starts to running 
when the light comes pouring in 
I know he'll be unhappy 
'Cause I'll never wear a frown 
Maybe if we keep on smiling 
He'll get tired of hanging 'round. 

If I forget to say my prayers 
the devil jumps with glee. 
But he feels so awful awful 
when he sees me on my knees 
So if you're full of trouble 
and you never seem to win, 
Just open up your heart and let the sun shine in. 

So let the sun shine in 
face it with a grin. 
Smilers never lose 
and frowners never win. 
So le the sun shine in 
face it with a grin 
Open up your heart and let the sun shine in.
