Something of a mock gospel tune with a universal message of hope beyond faith


Sunnyside Upside Down

You know, I was born with my sunnyside, upside down?
And I was drawn to that darker side of the town
Between the rights and the wrongs, Lord I was torn!
Yes, I was born with my sunnyside upside down

They pass me by every day, smiles upon their face
I can but try not to catch their eye, keep my own space
Can't you see why, I must deny this God-foresaken place?
Yes, I was born with my sunnyside upside down

Taking the path of least resistance is the safest thing to do
The road less travelled is steeper, but Lord what a view!
And so for years I would walk in the shadows out of town
You came along, lifted me up turned my whole world around

Helped me not stray, showed me the way,
Now I can walk without a frown
Though I was born with my sunnyside upside down
You lit up my life so my upside is the right way around

So he was born with his sunnyside upside down?
Could he not see any good side in the people all around
You came along lifted him high, pulled him up off the ground
Though he was born with his brightside upside down
Now he won't fall for the wrong side of a frown
Yes, he walks tall with his sunny side the right way around
