  • Mornin' Mr. Radio
    Mornin' little Cheerios
    Mornin' sister Oriole
    Did I tell you everything is fine
    In my mind

    Mornin' Mr. Shoe Shine Man
    Shine 'em bright in white and tan
    My baby said she loves me and
    Need I tell you that
    Everything here is just fine
    In my mind

    'Scuse me if I sing
    My heart has found its wings
    Searchin' high and low
    And now at last I know

    Mornin' Mr. Golden Gate
    I should walk but I can't wait
    I can't wait to set it straight
    I was shakin' but now I am
    Makin' it fine
    Here in my mind

    My heart will soar
    With love that's rare and real
    My smiling face will feel every cloud
    Then higher still
    Beyond the blue until
    I know I can
    Like any man
    Reach out my hand
    And touch the face of GOD

    'Scuse me if I sing
    My heart has found its wings
    Searchin' high and low
    And now at last I know

    Mornin' Mr. Radio
    Mornin' little Cheerios
    Mornin' sister Oriole
    Did I tell you everything is fine
    Wooo in my mind

    So, won't you get up Oriole
    So, won't you get up Cheerios
    Wake up Mr. Radio
    It's fine
    Here in my mind

    Singin' about mornin' little radio
    Mornin' little Cheerios
    Wake up Mr. Radio
    Need I tell you everything
    Right here is just doing fine Writer/s: DAVID FOSTER, JAY JOSEPH GRAYDON, AL JARREAU

  • Music Lover from CaliforniaI like the lyrics to this song. Nothing lame or corny here. Just a song that makes me smile.
  • Sheila from Austin TxThis is one the happiest song I've ever heard. i remember how it made me feel back when it was released,and i still get the same feeling today when i play it...it takes away all the ugliness of the world today.
  • Sabrina from Corvallis, OrCorny lyrics? HUMPH! Ok, maybe there are but so what? This is an upbeat song and I can't help but smile whenever I hear it! "Mornin'" is a song that takes me back to the days of when I was a young wife and mother living 'the dream" in sunny SoCal and all seemed right with my world! Heck, even nowadays I think it's a great song to put on in mornings to hear on the way to work...puts ya in a good mood :)
  • Kathy from New Orleans, LaThis song fills me with happiness, positive emotions. Who cares is the lyrics are a little silly ! sometimes happiness does that.
