Oh What a Beautiful Morning
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 elephants eye,
An' it looks like it's climbing clear up in the sky.

Oh, what a beautiful mornin',
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I got a beautiful feelin'
Ev'erything's goin' my way.

All the cattle are standin' like statues,
All the cattle are standin' like statues,
They don't turn their heads as they see me ride by,
But a little brown mav'rick is winkin' her eye.

Oh, what a beautiful mornin',
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I got a beautiful feelin'
Ev'erything's goin' 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 an old weepin' willer is laughin' at me

Oh, what a beautiful mornin',
Oh, what a beautiful day.




I got a beautiful feelin'
Ev'erything's goin' my way.

We'll, not ALL mornings aren't as wonderful. I mean, what if you just wanna see the beautiful AM sunrise as you have to open the window, but what you get is the surrounding of the zombie apocalypse but you just don't have a care in the world, so you just sit and drink your morning coffee while having a classic style until a zombie breaks through the door and starts to feast on your soft, tenderly warm flesh and slow to become one of the dead.

Now THAT when you start singing the song.

And that is how the begin a wonderful morning.
