Gale Garnett – We'll Sing In The Sunshine lyrics

We'll sing in the sunshine,
We'll laugh every day,
We'll sing in the sunshine,
Then I'll be on my way.

I will never love you,
The cost of love's too dear.
But though I'll never love you,
I'll stay with you one year
.

And we can sing in the sunshine,
We'll laugh everyday,
We'll sing in the sunshine,
Then I'll be on my way.

I'll sing to you each morning,
I'll kiss you every night.
But darlin' don't cling to me,
I'll soon be out of sight.

But we can sing in the sunshine,
We'll laugh everyday,
We'll sing in the sunshine,
Then I'll be on my way.

My daddy he once told me,
"Hey, don't you love you any man.
Just take what they may give you,
And give but what you can. "

And you can sing in the sunshine,
You'll laugh everyday,
You'll sing in the sunshine,
Then be on your way.

And when a year has ended,
And I have gone away,
You'll often speak about me,
And this is what you'll say:

We sang in the sunshine,
You know we laughed everyday,
We sang in the sunshine,
Then she went on her way.

    "I will never love You.
    The cost of love's too dear.
    But though I'll never love you.
    I'll stay with you one year".

    For the past 50+ years those lyrics have mystified me.
    First of all, those are words a guy does not want to hear from a girl he is living with. It is as if she is doing him a big favor.
    Why would she make what amounts to a business arrangement/deal, and stay with a guy she doesn't love, for one year? Why a year? Now I realize the exact amount of time is not significant, however, one year does rhyme quite nicely with "dear". The singer is very much a Daddy's girl. The father has had a heavy influence on his daughter, So much so, that she may be incapable of ever fully loving another man after her father. I knew the father said these words:

    "Hey, don't you love you any man.
    Just take want they may give you.
    And give but what you can".

    I was not aware, until I read carefully the next stanza, these are also his words:

    "And you can sing in the sunshine.
    You'll laugh everyday.
    You'll sing in the sunshine.
    Then be on your way".

    The "Daddy's" imprint on her is indelible, she seems incapable of a deep, mature, committed love relationship with another man. Her father tells her to find a man to take care of her, but whatever you do, do not become permanently attached to him. Obviously, the father has been wounded by love (his wife, her mother?) and he is instilling that wound/hurt onto his daughter. And he may also want her to believe that no "other" man can surpass his "love" for his daughter. She is being in a sense held hostage by her father's parental mind control. His inability to let go of her, let her grow up and live her own life. So, for the rest of her life, she may "sing and laugh in the sunshine", but it will no doubt be a life of continued loneliness and possible bleakness and darkness. And now I "know the rest of the story".
