MANNY FREISER: Music

SWEET MELISSA

(MANNY FREISER)
July 29, 2017

This song was inspired by, and is about, my niece, Melissa. She is one of those rare people whose very presence lights up a room, my life -- the whole world! Sure, she goes through the same crap we ALL do -- it's just that all through it, I've never seen her stop smiling, radiating positive energy -- or giving up! SO much easier said than done. Tell me your secret, Sunshine Girl!

Seems like a month of Sundays

Since I’ve seen you at my door

Telling me you miss me

But I guarantee I miss you more

 

So tell me about your journey

Did you ever reach that Golden Shore

Did you find everything

That you’ve always been searching for

 

CHORUS 

Sweet Melissa with the magic smile

I’ve been missing her for a while

I need Melissa in my world

Don’t you know that she’s my sunshine

Sunshine Girl

 

Won’t you smile upon me a little longer

That’s all that I’ve been living for

And the sun don’t shine around here

All that much anymore

 

Sweet Melissa with the magic smile

I’ve been missing her for a while

I need Melissa in my world

Don’t you know that she’s my sunshine

Sunshine Girl

 

I know you really must be going

There’s a big old world to explore

And I pray that your voyage brings you around here

Just once more

In my life

 

Sweet Melissa with the magic smile

I’ve been missing her for a while

I need Melissa in my world

Don’t you know that she’s my sunshine

Sunshine Girl
