  • Wishing is good time wasted
    Still it's a habit they say
    Wishing for sweets I've tasted
    That's all I do all day
    Maybe there's nothing in wishing
    But speaking of wishing I'll say:

    Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning
    No one could be sweeter than my sweetie when I meet her in the morning
    Where the morning glories
    Twine around the door
    Whispering pretty stories
    I long to hear once more
    Strolling with my girlie where the dew is pearly early in the morning
    Butterflies all flutter up and kiss each little buttercup at dawning
    If I had Aladdin's lamp for only a day
    I'd make a wish and here's what I'd say:
    Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning

    Dreaming was meant for nighttime
    I live in dreams all the day
    I know it's not the right time
    But still I dream away
    What could be sweeter than dreaming
    Just dreaming and drifting away

    Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning
    No one could be sweeter than my sweetie when I meet her in the morning
    Where the morning glories
    Twine around the door
    Whispering pretty stories
    I long to hear once more
    Strolling with my girlie where the dew is pearly early in the morning
    Butterflies all flutter up and kiss each little buttercup at dawning
    If I had Aladdin's lamp for only a day
    I'd make a wish and here's what I'd say:
