  • Evening is a time of day
    I find nothing much to say
    Don't know what to do
    But I come to

    When it's early in the morning
    Over by the window day is dawning
    When I feel the air I feel that
    Life is very good to me you know
    In the sun there's so much yellow
    Something in the early morning meadow
    Tells me that today you're on your way
    And you'll be coming home, home to me

    Nighttime isn't clear to me
    I find nothing near to me
    Don't know what to do
    But I come to

    When it's early in the morning
    Very very early without warning
    I can feel a newly formed vibration
    Sneaking up on me again
    There's a songbird on my pillow
    I can see the funny weeping willow
    I can see the sun you're on your way
    And you'll be coming home

    Evening is a time of day
    I find nothing much to say
    Don't know what to do
    But I come to

    When it's early in the morning
    Over by the window day is dawning
    When I feel the air I feel that
    Life is very good to me you know
    In the sun there's so much yellow
    Something in the early morning meadow
    Tells me that today you're on your way
    And you'll be coming home, home to me

    When it's early in the morning
    Very very early without warning
    I can feel a newly formed vibration
    Sneaking up on me again
    There's a songbird on my pillow
    I can see the funny weeping willow
    I can see the sun you're on your way
    And you'll be coming home Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Moanin' Lisa from Chillicothe Mo.I still love this song & I even hear it played in the Walmart store. Takes me back to '69 when I was a kid. It had a bouncy sound to it & the lyrics were upbeat. On this hit, "Early In The Morning" the Kansas City area rock & roll radio stations had it ranked higher in their top ten. I'm surprised that Billboard had it at only #12. Our area radio stations ranked it higher & I think that is better reflection of its popularity here in 1969. Over and out !
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 16th 1969, "Early in the Morning" by Vanity Fare entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #77; and on January 25th, 1970 it peaked at #12 {for 1 week} and spent 13 weeks on the Top 100...
    The British quintet had two other Top 100 hits; "Hitchin' A Ride" {#5 in 1970} and "(I Remember) Summer Morning" {#98 in 1970}.
  • Dean from Hoover, AlWow! I never knew that Vanity Fare sang this song! One of my favorites when I was a kid!
  • Steve from Whittier, CaExcellent song.

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"They're Playing My Song

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
