Lyrics
Who Loves the Sun 
Who loves the sun 
Who cares that it makes plants grow 
Who cares what it does 
Since you broke my heart 
Who loves the wind 
Who cares that it makes breezes 
Who cares what it does 
Since you broke my heart 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Not everyone 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun 
Who loves the rain 
Who cares that it makes flowers 
Who cares that it makes showers 
Since you broke my heart 
Who loves the sun 
Who cares that it is shining 
Who cares what it does 
Since you broke my heart 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Not everyone 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun 
Sun 
Sun 
Sun 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Not everyone 
Pa Pa Pa Pa 
Who loves the sun
