    Lyrics

    [Chorus - Akon]:
    Who'd ever thought that I would see this day
    Where I would see my ghetto life fade away
    Cause I was lost and couldn't find a way
    And now I look forward to every day
    Welcome to my sunny day

    [Verse 1 - Akon]:
    Block don't stop, always stayed hot
    No matter how the seasons got
    I still remember when they took me away
    Kept it on lock, then I got caught
    Realized I had to stop
    Then I took the time to explore a better way

    Searched high and low, so close, yet so far to go
    I just know, there's a sunny day

    [Chorus - Akon]:
    Who'd ever thought that I would see this day
    Where I would see my ghetto life fade away
    Cause I was lost and couldn't find a way
    And now I look forward to every day
    Welcome to my sunny day

    My sunny day
    Everyday
    A better day
    Welcome to my sunny day
    My sunny day
    Every day
    A better day
    Welcome to my sunny day

    [Verse 2 - Wyclef Jean]:
    I was born in the ghetto
    Raised in the ghetto
    Saw my first 9 millimeter in the ghetto
    Got my first kiss in the ghetto
    Played hide and go seek with the girls in the ghetto
    Wrote my first hit in the ghetto
    Yeah Mona Lisa, can I get a date on Friday-ay-ay?
    It's hard for me to let go
    Life in the ghetto
    The night it blessed my cousin (whoa-oa-oa)
    Had to find a way out the ghetto
    Picked up the guitar and started singing in the ghetto
    Haters used to hate in the ghetto
    Said I woulda never made it up out the ghetto
    I guess that's why my cousins sold the yayo
    Even though Annie said the sun come out tomorrow
    But the ghetto stayed dark
    I never thought I'd ever see the Billboard charts

    [Chorus - Akon]:
    Who'd ever thought that I would see this day
    Where I would see my ghetto life fade away
    Cause I was lost and couldn't find a way
    And now I look forward to every day
    Welcome to my sunny day

    My sunny day
    Everyday
    A better day
    Welcome to my sunny day
    My sunny day
    Every day
    A better day
    Welcome to my sunny day

    [Verse 3 - Akon]:
    Been a long day
    On my way
    To my holy place to pray
    Give thanks for every blessing given to me
    I know theres more to see, more to me
    No more living in misery
    Cause this is how I envisioned life to be

    Searched high and low, so close, yet so far to go
    I just know, there's a sunny day

    [Chorus - Akon]:
    Who'd ever thought that I would see this day
    Where I would see my ghetto life fade away
    Cause I was lost and couldn't find a way
    And now I look forward to every day
    Welcome to my sunny day

    My sunny day
    Everyday
    A better day
    Welcome to my sunny day
    My sunny day
    Every day
    A better day
    Welcome to my sunny day
