Oh! What a Beautiful Morning

Writer(s): Richard Rodgers / Oscar Hammerstein

There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow,
There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow,
The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye,
And it looks like it’s a-climbing clear up to the sky.
Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day!
I got a beautiful feeling everything’s going my way.
*All the cattle are standing like statues,*
*All the cattle are standing like statues,*
*They don’t turn their heads as they see me ride by,*
*What a little brown magic is the wink in their eye.*
*Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day!*
*I got a beautiful feeling everything’s going my way.*
All the sounds of the earth are like music,
All the sounds of the earth are like music,
The breeze is so busy it don’t miss a tree,
And the old weeping willow is a-laughing at me.
Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day!
I got a beautiful feeling everything’s going my way.

Oh, what a beautiful mornin’, what a beautiful day
I got a beautiful feelin’ everything’s goin’ my way
Oh what a beautiful day!

*These verses were not sung in Frank’s a shortened version, sung in the Hit Parade broadcast in 1945, no doubt because of on-air time constraints.
