Morning
Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We took the night as it came to us
And it came like the tide from the sea
Long legged, dusty eyed, satisfied woman
Come spend the morning with me

We took the night as it came to us
Both of us hungry and free
Long legged, open eyed, satisfied woman
Come spend the morning with me

Come spend the morning with me
Come spend the morning with me

Wake up my lady, the darkness is gone
Whatever will be, let it be




Long legged, dusty eyed, satisfied woman
Come on, spend the morning with me

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Engelbert Humperdinck’s song "Morning" depict a passionate evening between two lovers who find themselves still awake at daybreak. The first verse describes how they took the night as it came to them, like the tide from the sea. The woman is described as “long legged, dusty eyed, satisfied” indicating that she has been up all night partying and having a good time. The singer invites her to spend the morning with him, indicating that he wants to continue their time together.


The second verse repeats the first, but emphasizes that both the man and the woman are “hungry and free” like they haven’t experienced in some time. The woman is once again described as “long legged” a nod to her physical attractiveness, and “open-eyed” as she takes in the early morning with a newfound sense of freedom. The repeated invitation to “come spend the morning with me” is a persistent plea to continue their time together now in the daylight.


The final stanza urges the woman to wake up and seize the day. The song crescendos with a declarative statement that whatever happens in the coming hours, “let it be.” It's a beautifully evocative song that speaks of young love and lust, the type that isn't satisfied until the morning sun is high in the sky.
