The Sun Is Burning

This song is by Simon and Garfunkel and appears on the album Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (1964) and on the compilation album Old Friends (1997).

The sun is burning in the sky
Strands of clouds go slowly drifting by
In the park the lazy bees
Are joining in the flowers among the trees
And the sun burns in the sky

Now the sun is in the west
Little kids go home to take their rest
And the couples in the park
Are holding hands and waiting for the dark
And the sun is in the west

Now the sun is sinking low
Children playing know it's time to go
High above a spot appears
A little blossom blooms and then draws near
And the sun is sinking low

Now the sun has come to earth
Shrouded in a mushroom cloud of death
Death comes in a blinding flash...
Of hellish heat and leaves a smear of ash
And the sun has come to earth

Now the sun has disappeared
All is darkness anger pain and fear
Twisted sightless wrecks of men
Go groping on their knees and cry in pain
And the sun has disappeared
