  • Good morning starshine
    The earth says hello
    You twinkle above us
    We twinkle below
    Good morning starshine
    You lead us along
    My love and me as we singing
    Our early morning singing song

    Gliddy glub gloopy, nibby nabby noopy la, la, la, lo, lo
    Sabba sibby sabba, nooby abba nabba, le, le, lo, lo
    Tooby ooby walla, nooby abba naba
    Early morning singing song

    Good morning starshine
    There's nothing in the skies
    We met in the sunlight
    And my lovers eyes
    Good morning starshine
    So happy to be
    My love and me as we singing
    Our early morning singing song

    Gliddy glub gloopy, nibby nabby noopy la, la, la, lo, lo
    Sabba sibby sabba, nooby abba nabba, le, le, lo, lo
    Tooby ooby walla, nooby abba naba

    Can you hear me singing a song, a love song
    Singing a song
    Loving a song, laughing a song
    Singing a song

  • Ed from Rocklin, CaDoes anyone know who the female vocalist doing the background singing is??? I could listen to her all day! Great voice!!
  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxAlas, 'free' often didn't equate 'intelligent.'
  • Camille from Toronto, OhLove the song. Certainly, it captures the free-spirited sentiment of the late 60's.

  • Jeffrey from Rosemead, CaThough I really like this song, for years I thought it was sung by John Denver.
  • Robert from Fox River Grove, IlC'mon, Ricky, you really love this song.

    There're plenty of songs I don't like, not much chance I will dredge them up from memory so I can go spend the time looking for a place to complain about them.
  • Ricky from Ohsweken, -This may be a "hit", but I HATE this song & am in TOTAL denial of its succuess.
