'Little Ray of Sunshine" - Lyrics and Chords

 

This song came along one day, while I was pushing my humungous twin stroller out on a winter day in Portland, Oregon, where I live. My kids were still pretty tiny, but huge inspirations. This one's made for dancing!

You're my little ray of sunshine
Little ray of sunshine
Smile so bright
You could light up the night
Little ray of sunshine
Little ray of sunshine
Keeping me warm in a snow storm

 

Don't go, my little ray--ay
I need your light every day--ay
Don't go, my little ray-ay
You're the answer to a prayer
From the Lord above
The answer to a prayer
When I needed love--

 

You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay

 

Don't go, my little ray--ay
You're my rainbow maker on gray day
Don't go, my little ray--ay
You're a miracle
I didn't know I'd need
You're my vitamins
L, O, V and E--

 

You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay

 

Shine, shine and be mine all mine
Shine, shine and be mine
Shine, shine and be mine all mine
Little ray--ay, little ray

 

Shine, shine and be mine all mine
Shine, shine and be mine
Shine, shine and be mine all mine
Little ray--ay, little ray

 

You're my little ray of sunshine
Little ray of sunshine
Smile so bright
You could light up the night
Little ray of sunshine
Little ray of sunshine
Keeping me warm in a snow storm

 

Don't go, my little ray--ay
I need your light every day--ay
Don't go, my little ray--ay
You're a miracle
I didn't know I'd need
You're my vitamins
L, O, V and E--

 

You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay

Sunlight all night and day...

With my little ray--ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay

TED Talk: "How Singing Together Changes the Brain" - Tania de Jong

Tania de Jong AM makes the case that people singing together can change the brain. Pushing the idea that creativity is the strategic tool of the 21st century, she says how our voices have been silenced and that it's not doing us any good. She explains how singing is a survival mechanism, how it makes our hearts beat together and can help heal strokes and depression.

 

 
 

With singing, and the potential she believes it has, Tania dedicates herself to enhancing and promoting ingenuity and founded Creativity Australia and Creative Universe to do so. As a leading Australian soprano and through 'With One Voice', Tania works with disadvantaged communities. In 2008 she was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for services to the arts and for the establishment and development of arts enrichment programs for schools and communities.
