Good Morning to You


(Melody by Ernst Richter, 1808-1879, Lyrics by Abbie Farwell Brown, 1871-1927)

1. Good morning to you! Good morning to you!
We’re all in our places With sun-shiny faces;
Oh this is the way To start a new day!

2. Good morning to you! Good morning to You!
Whatever the weather, We’ll make it together,
In work and in play, A beautiful day!

    I’m from Scotland, born 1963, and remember hearing this on Camp Runamuck (the Divine girls Camp!). Ive just discovered it’s from an old song by Ernst Richter & Abby Farewell in the 1800’s. Wow! Good 8 everyone 🌺

  3. My first grade teacher taught the class this song. We sang it every morning. I’m in my mid-sixties and I still remember the words. Thanks to Mrs. Wiggins, the best first grade teacher.

  4. When my kids were growing up . My mother-in-law would sing that song every morning. She was a retired school teacher.. Now I sing it to my own grand daughter, who I love to the moon and back.
