A "Sunny One So True" T Shirt out in France????

Men's T-shirt, 100% cotton. Short sleeve. Old red paprika with white and back vintage print.
Title: Sunny - Author/composer: Bobby Hebb

"Sunny" is the name of a song written by Bobby Hebb. It is one of the most covered popular songs, with hundreds of versions released. BMI rates "Sunny" number 25 in its "Top 100 songs of the century." Hebb wrote the song after November 22, 1963, the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and Hebb's older brother Harold was stabbed to death outside a Nashville nightclub. Hebb was devastated by both events and many critics say that those events inspired the tune. According to Hebb, he wrote the song as an expression of a preference for a "sunny" disposition over a "lousy" disposition. Many other artists have recorded versions of the song: Marvin Gaye, Boney M, Cher, George Benson, Frank Sinatra & Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown & Marva Whitney, Christophe Willem, the Four Tops, Richard Anthony, Wilson Pickett, Frankie Valli, Shirley Bassey, Jose Feliciano, Stevie Wonder, Dusty Springfield...
