Critical receptionEdit

"Sippin' On Sunshine" received mixed reviews from critics.

Craig Manning of Absolute Punk gave the song a mixed review, stating that both "Sippin' On Sunshine" and "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" were "enjoyable but generic Katy Perry pop.[2] In his review of the album, Jason Lipshutz of Billboard, said that "Sippin' On Sunshine" could potentially do very well on Adult Contemporary radio and compared its lyrics to that of the album's lead single, "Here's to Never Growing Up". He also noted that it was the first track on the album with a very prominent bass.[3] Sam Lansky of Idolator gave a positive review of the track, calling the track "jubilant" and going as far as to say that it "out-roars [Katy Perry's] 'Roar'".[4] StarPulse also compared the track to the work of Katy Perry.[5]

LyricsEdit

Boi you get me so high
Buzzin' like a beehive
Just a little kiss, but when it hits my lips, I'm sippin' on sunshine

Boi you looking so fly
Hotter than July
I just want to stay forever and a day sippin' on sunshine

Down at the beach holding my hand
Got an umbrella stuck in the sand
Watching the waves crash into the shore
Baby I want some more

Hey, what a beautiful day
All I need is a taste
Nothing but a good time
Sippin' on sunshine

Oh, don't got nowhere to go
So we'll go with the flow
Yeah we're living the life
Sippin' on sunshine
Sippin' on sunshine
We-ooh-we-ooh-we-ooh
Hey!
We-ooh-we-ooh-we-ooh
Oh!
We-ooh-we-ooh-we-ooh
Hey!
We-ooh-we-ooh-we
Sippin' on sunshine

You blowin' my mind
You got me up on Cloud Nine
Just a little taste, I wouldn't want to waste, a sip of that sunshine

We can kick it all night
Underneath the moonlight
But when the party ends, we'll do it all again, sippin' on sunshine

Down at the beach holding my hand
Got an umbrella stuck in the sand
Watching the waves crash into the shore
Baby I want some more

Hey, what a beautiful day
All I need is a taste
Nothing but a good time
Sippin' on sunshine

Oh, don't got nowhere to go
So we'll go with the flow
Yeah we're living the life
Sippin' on sunshine
We-ooh-we-ooh-we-ooh
Hey!
We-ooh-we-ooh-we-ooh
Sippin' on sunshine
We-ooh-we-ooh-we-ooh
Hey!
We-ooh-we-ooh-we
Sippin' on sunshine

(Sippin' on sunshine)
(Sippin' on sunshine)
(Sippin' on sunshine)
Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine
Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine
Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine

Hey, what a beautiful day
All I need is a taste
And it tastes so good
Nothing but a good time
A good time
Sippin' on sunshine
Oh, don't got nowhere to go
No we don't
So we'll go with the flow
Hell yeah
Yeah we're living the life
The life
Sippin' on sunshine
All day all night
Sippin' on sunshine
Yeah a good time

Everybody's just sipping on sunshine

Whoa Whoa Whoa
Sippin' on sunshine
