Hi Mudcats! A favour, if you please. I'm looking for lyric to a song with this title - don't know the artist - but it begins, "Sunshine, go away today, I don't feel much like dancin'". It's a late sixties or early seventies protest/pop tune but I think it would suit my folk style well. Thanks in advance.

SUNSHINE (GO AWAY TODAY)
Larry Dunn/Jonathan Edwards/Mickey Newbury

Sunshine go away today.
I don't feel much like dancin'.
Some man's gone, he's tried to run my life.
[He] don't know what he's askin'.
[When] he tells me I better get in line.
[I] can't hear what he's sayin'.
When I grow up I'm gonna make it mine.
These ain't dues I been payin'.
How much does it cost? I'll buy it.
The time is all we've lost. I'll try it.
And he can't even run his own life.
I'll be damned if he'll run mine.
Sunshine.

Sunshine go away today.
I don't feel much like dancin'.
Some man's gone, he's tried to run my life.
[He] don't know what he's askin'.
Workin' starts to make me wonder where
Fruits of what I do are goin'.
He says in love and war all is fair.
But he's got cards he ain't showin'.
How much does it cost? I'll buy it.
The time is all we've lost. I'll try it.
And he can't even run his own life.
I'll be damned if he'll run mine.
Sunshine.

Sunshine, come on back another day,
I promise you I'll be singin'
This old world, she's gonna turn around,
Brand new bells'll be ringin'.

[Recorded by Jonathan Edwards, 1972]
