It's a beautiful morning, ah
I think I'll go outside for a while
And just smile
Just take in some clean fresh air, boy
No sense in staying inside
If the weather's fine and you've got the time
It's your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day
Either way

It's a beautiful morning, ah
Each bird keeps singing his own song
So long
I've got to be on my way now
No fun just hanging around
I got to cover ground
You couldn't keep me down
It just ain't no good if the sun shines
When you're still inside
Shouldn't hide
Still inside
Shouldn't hide
Still inside, shouldn't hide.
Oh, oh, oh

Ooh-ah-ah
Ooh-ah-ah

There will be children with robins and flowers
Sunshine caresses each new waking hour

Seems to me that people keep seeing more and more each day
Gotta say, lead the way
It's okay, brand new day
Gotta say, it's okay
Brand new day, gotta say, lead the way
Oh, oh, oh

Ooh-ah-ah
Oh, oh, oh
Ooh-ah-ah
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh
Ooh-ah-ah
Oh
Ooh-ah-ah
Oh, oh, oh

I was surprised and very pleased to see this pop up here on RP. It gives me gentle memories of a time that feels so very long ago. Despite the troubled times, it was indeeda beautiful morning here, and I'm counting my blessings tonight for sunshine, friends, (socially distant of course!), and my little family. Thanks!
A great song 42 years ago, back in my college student days, and still a great welcoming of spring opus,  giving us thoughts of more normal times- and their beautiful mornings- that will return again. It's still an amazing  world that we live in, and we (and I mean all of us throughout the world that listen to RP!) are going to get through pandemic together. Stay safe. Help those that are less fortunate. Listen to good music.
Bill, are you trying to encourage breaking stay at home orders? Or just picking songs to evoke the angst of these days?
A real paradox: not a great song, but oh, the memories of summertime youth it conjures up makes it an instant classic. 
wow! this hasn't been played in 10 years. I like it!
