I Got The Sun In The Morning

Annie Get Your Gun, 1946
VERSE
Taking stock of what I have and what I haven't
What do I find?
The things I've got will keep me satisfied.
Checking up on what I have and what I haven't,
What do I find?
A healthy balance on the credit side.
CHORUS 1
Got no diamond, got no pearl,
Still I think I'm a lucky girl-
I got the sun in the morning
And the moon at night.
Got no mansion, got no yacht,
Still I'm happy with what I've got-
I got the sun in the morning
And the moon at night.
Sunshine
Gives me a lovely day,
Moonlight
Gives me the Milky Way.
Got no checkbooks, got no banks,
Still I'd like to express my thanks-
I got the sun in the morning
And the moon at night,
And with the sun in the morning
And the moon in the evening,
I'm all right.
CHORUS 2
Got no butler, got no maid,
Still I think I've been overpaid-
I've got the sun in the morning
And the moon at night.
Got no silver, got no gold,
What I've got can't be bought or sold-
I've got the sun in the morning
And the moon at night.
Sunshine
Gives me a lovely day,
Moonlight
Gives me the Milky Way.
Got no heirlooms for my kin,
Made no will but when I cash in,
I'll leave the sun in the morning
And the moon at night,
And with the sun in the morning
And the moon in the evening,
I'm all right.
REFRAIN 2
Got no honey, got no jam,
Lost my feller and here I am
With just the sun in the morning
And the moon at night.
Got no future, got no plan,
Things look different without a man-
I got the sun in the morning
And the moon at night.
Sunshine
Vanished beyond recall,
Moonlight
Just isn't there at all.
No ambition, things look black,
Won't be different till he comes back
And he brings the sun in the morning
And the moon at night,
And with the sun in the morning
And the moon in the evening,
I'm all right.
