lyrics

Daddy, what if the sun stopped shining?
What would happen then?

If the sun stopped shining, you'd be so surprised
You'd stare at the heavens with wide open eyes,
And the wind would carry your light to the skies
And the sun would start shining again.

But, Daddy, what if the wind stopped blowing?
What would happen then?

If the wind stopped blowing, then the land would be dry,
And your boat wouldn't sail and, your kite wouldn't fly,
And the grass would see your trouble and she'd tell the wind,
And the wind would start blowing again.

But, Daddy, what if the grass stopped growing?
What would happen then?

Well, if the grass stopped growing you'd probably cry,
And the ground would be watered by the tears from your eyes,
And like your love for me, that grass would grow so high.
Yes, the grass would start growing again.

But, Daddy, what if I stopped loving you?
What would happen then?

If you stopped loving me, then the grass would stop growing,
The sun would stop shining and the wind would stop blowing.
So you see, if you wanna keep this old world a'going,
You'd better start loving me again, again...
You better start loving me again.

You better start loving me again.
You better start loving me again.
