MP3 Recording of Good Morning, Merry Sunshine

Good Morning, Merry Sunshine

Good morning, merry sunshine,

How did you come so soon?

You chase the little stars away

And shine away the moon.

I saw you go to sleep last night

Before I ceased my playing.

How did you get ‘way over there,

And where have you been staying?

*****

    I’m 69 yrs old and was taught this rhyme a little differently by my grandmother
    Who helped raise me. She was born in January, 1900 and told this rhyme pretty
    Much every day of my life growing up. Of course, it can be no different for me…ever!

    Good morning, Merry Sunshine! How do you wake so soon?
    You’ve frightened all the stars away and shined away the moon.
    I saw you go to sleep last night, before I stopped my playing.
    How did you get way over there and where have you been staying?

    I never go to sleep, Dear Child, I just go round to see
    The little children of the East who rise and watch for me.
    I waken all the birds and trees and flowers on my way
    And then, come back to see the child who stayed out late to play.
