good morning, good morning, it's time to rise and shine.


good morning, good morning, I hope you're feeling fine
come on, get up, get out of bed
it's time to raise your sleepy head
the morning's dawning just for you
and all your dreams are coming true
toodle-dee-doo, toodle-dee-doo...

good morning, good morning, it's time to rise and shine

good morning!



thank you natalie, for leaving that sung message years ago, for no reason, on my voicemail. I used to sing it to the girls in the morning to wake them up. my husband sings it sometimes too, and both girls do. you'll possibly never know this because I haven't talked to you in years and years, you know the way people meet and connect and drift apart and who knows where you are today? but this is how you are part of my family, wherever you are, whatever you're doing.

Spent hyacinths?

daffodils bulbs! the miracle ones I threw in their mesh bag on top of a pile of dirt last fall, some of them rotted over the winter, some got partially eaten (the mole? a squirrel?) and some set roots and grew and some of those bloomed, some were given away and planted, and some didn't even get to set roots and still bloomed, some bloomed in a bowl in the shed, all that yellow coming on short stems out of that shriveling husk of a nest of a pear-shaped bulb. and I took their pictures in every light, night and day, from the day I threw them in the dirt. and I took more pictures of them just about half an hour ago. I'm frugal in some respects, I demand a lot of worth from the things I spend money on, and the bulbs were on sale to begin with. I think only three got planted in the yard, but they'll spread eventually. I'm in no particular rush.

Ah, and and there was me relishing the sharp scent. Stiil no-one can be disappointed with a daffodil although I'm not a great fan of yellow in the garden. I like my flowers to sport tasteful shades of red, pink, blue and lavender. Yellow seems a bit too brash, in-your-face, loud. Perhaps I'm too English.

So many people, from all over the world, have looked up this song and visited this page that it just amazes me. It's my number one search engine referral. Sometimes I sing it to myself and have considered recording a little version of it to post, but have never gotten around to it and now the sound's gone on my camera, unfortunately. Rain will do that to electronics, and sand, and repeated banging around in pockets and so on. It's too bad, too, because it took decent video (still does, but silent) and not bad sound, and then I could make mp3s from the files. In any case, if you're here for this song there are hundreds of other people all over looking for it, too. For some reason, this strikes me as both endearing and encouraging.

I looked up the lyrics and they brought me here! I had a CD that I loved with this song on it with my first child 11 years ago. It also had a song, "Socks on first, shoes on second"....still can't find the CD online.

Trying to find that song for my kids. I have three. Woke up one morning with that song on my lips and it's been torturing me that i can't find it. Help me.

Well, I know I've seen versions of it on YouTube, have you looked at the videos there? Not a CD or an mp3 file, but at least it's something.

This is the most popular post of all the ones on this blog. If I had a dollar for every time someone came here looking for that song, I'd be rich.
