OH, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNIN'

Original Frank Sinatra version


There's a bright golden haze on the meadow
There's a bright golden haze on the meadow
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye
And it looks like it's climbing clear up to the sky

Oh what a beautiful morning
Oh what a beautiful day
I got a beautiful feeling
Everything's going my way

(All the cattle are standing like statues)
(All the cattle are standing like statues)
They don't turn their heads as they see me ride by
(But a little brown maverick is winking her eye)

Oh what a beautiful morning
Oh what a beautiful day
I got a beautiful feeling
Everything's going my way

All the sounds of the earth are like music
All the sounds of the earth are like music
The breeze is so busy it don't miss a tree
And an old weeping willow is laughing at me

Oh what a beautiful morning
Oh what a beautiful day
I got a beautiful feeling
Everything's going my way
