On a sunny day I’m happy
On a sunny day I smile
Flowers bloom in the sunlight
We play outside and we go and look for butterflies
On a rainy day I’m happy
On a rainy day I smile
Hills and trees look fresh and green
And I see rainbow coloured umbrellas in the streets
On a windy day I’m happy
On a windy day I smile
All the leaves shake and fly
And my kite is flying high in the sky
On a snowy day I’m happy
On a snowy day I smile
Snowflakes fall on my window
Frozen leaves shine like silver stars in a dream
