Sunshine in a Bag Lyrics

Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
I ain't happy, I' m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long the future is comin' on

I ain't happy, I' m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long the future is comin'...

    There phrase "sunshine in a bag" and the name "Clint Eastwood" is obvious. It's a reference from a Clint Eastwood movie where he has a bag of gold and a kid asks "mister, you alright?"

    "ya, I have a bag of sunshine."

    Sunshine is a brand from LSD.

    Probably the so g is just abkut taking lsd and going high

    In other parts of the lyrics we can follow the same idea.

    I can imagine the term, "sunshine in a bag" as a form of an antidepressant, whether it be drugs or whatever makes them happy for the current time.

    The line, " I got sunshine in a bag" is probably a reference to marijuana, or at least to contraband of some sort. The line comes from the movie The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly when Eastwood refers to a saddlebag full of gold as sunshine in a bag.

    Sunshine in a bag could mean every drug you can buy. Sunshine I'm a bag really watch the video. They all come in a bag!!
    Yes it's a ref to Clint Eastwood I know this but my brother who has let me be the lucky witness to all jos dope habits made me see the other side as well. Actually this was a smart move that appealed to more than 1 audience with this song genius

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    While I do believe the song is referencing Clint Eastwood but I can't help but think they are referencing jenkem, a drug inhaled using a paper bag.
