Walking down the street
there's a sunshine soldier
a penny in his pocket
not a dream to his name
His day has passed, his time has ended
and now he stands in the pouring rain
A child walks by and hands him a flower
And that's how love is begun
Brothers and sisters embrace each other
A shadow has fallen from the face of man
He closes his eyes and the sunshine soldier
has found he really has no place to stand
'Children gather round, let's do something for him'
'Now all togheter let's lend him a hand'
The world has changed, your ship is (?)
And now he feels he has no place to go
