WAKE ME UP IN THE MORNING

Wake me up in the morning girl and we will see the world and it will be alright
Wake me up in the morning girl and we will see the world and it will be alright



I’ll get me down to the shoe shine man and I’ll acquire a tan at the solarium
I’ll fill the tank on the Dolomite and I’ll repair that light and the air freshener



Wake me up in the morning girl and we will see the world and it will be alright
Wake me up in the morning girl and we will see the world and it will be alright



I’ll call the bank and I’ll close my account and take my savings out in a brown envelope
I’ll say goodbye to my favourite friends and I’ll make amends with the fallen away



Wake me up in the morning girl and we will see the world and it will be alright
Wake me up in the morning girl and we will see the world and it will be alright



I’ll brush my teeth and my hair, and wear my Sunday best
I won’t be happy ‘til my mirror’s a solar glare and the car is pointing west



I’ll fill my flask with a rusty nail, and I’ll jump my bail just after I’ve changed my name
I’ll make some discs of our favourite bands, we’ll have some Steely Dan and some J.J.Cale



I’ll brush my teeth and my hair, and wear my Sunday best
I won’t be happy ‘til my mirror’s a solar glare and the car is pointing west


I’ll take a loan for a grand or eight at the highest rate because I won’t pay it back
I’ll wear a hat and a goatee beard, I will have disappeared as far as anyone knows

Wake me up in the morning girl and we will see the world and it will be alright
Wake me up in the morning girl and we will see the world and it will be alright
