Gimme some lovin' early in the morning
I just woke up with this appetite
Come on, gimme love in the morning light

Gimme some lovin' early in the morning
I just woke up with this appetite
Come on, gimme love in the morning light

Some people like it in the afternoon
I don't think that I can wait that soon
Come on, gimme love in the morning light
Some people likin' it late at night
I could wait that long but I don't think I might
Come on, gimme love in the morning light

I'm gonna love you soft and love you sweet
I could feel your heart beat
I need your attention to get me started right
I'm gonna wake you up with a kiss on the cheek
Come a little closer open up to me
Good morning babe Good mornin babe
Open your eyes just a little bit
Good morning sunshine I can't resist
Dreaming about you babe all through the night

sheww! 3rd rate guitar work, at best. He needs a lot more support from the band because he just cant carry it alone. other than that, the phony, affected vocals and cliche lyrics (other than "couldn't wait that soon", that was a good line)...well, I guess I didn't like it.

I, too, thought that was who was singing. Certainly, in the style of.
this song kinda reminds me of Bruce Cockburn's "going to the country", i like this song a lot in other words.

I hate songs with guitar (or some other instrument) coming through just the left or right channel. Makes me feel like I'm going deaf in the other ear (at least, when wearing headphones).
Yeah me too. I guess it's really only horrible when wearing headphones, but it makes it unlistenable at work.

But it's not a good song. It's an awful song - it's repetitive, it's wimpy and it's annoying. I change radio stations every time it comes on. The dubious lyrics of the song just make it worse.

I had sex with my girlfriend while she was asleep once, she didnt know in the morning till I told her. Does that make me weird?
It makes me think you have a pretty small penis...

Haha...try actually BEING deaf in one ear! I have headphones on here at work and all I heard that entire song was vocals!

Oh my, someone is defenitely too touchy feely and providing far more personal information then anyone wants to know. You obviously always put the toilet seat down after using it, that is assuming that you stand when you urinate which frankly I find highly doubtful. Now getting back to the music, good song!

They just followed up with Taj Mahal's Corinna. Love it!
Saw them open for Dave Matthews Band around 7 years ago. Hated them. Can't believe this is the same group - it's actually listenable.

I think there's a lot of pressure on women to acquiesce with the sexual demands of men, and that men take this for granted. As a man I've perpetrated this in the past, trying to convince my girlfriend to have sex with me even though she didn't want to. It took me a while to realize that it was disrespectful and wrong to do so. Anyway, it's one of those things that I'm regretful about, so maybe I'm being over-sensitive about it. I do feel that it's a sexist behaviour that is perpetrated by a lot of men - without many of them even realizing it.

It's soft, and gentle, and it's obviously not for you. AO

I am a female and this song is tender, not sexist.

I get annoyed everytime I hear this sexist bullcrap. It's such a typical male thing to demand sex when and how they want it. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against morning sex - I've had some very sweet experiences with it; What bothers me is the the fact that this guy is basically demanding sex *now* from his partner regardless of whether they've even had a chance to wake up, let alone want to gratify his sexual desires.
