The 'Morning Edition' Theme

Oh I hate to get up in the morning

Please don't wake me up this morning

Let me stay in bed ... and ... sleep (I don't like to daydream)

 

The world can turn without me today

And if you wake me up I can say

That we will not be friends... for... long

 

Remember when... we used to sleep forever?

Dreams... floating as light as feathers

When... will those delightful dreams

Come back again?

Tell me when!!!

 

For crying out loud, please would you shut up

No news, no features, I've had enough ...

But, say, who wrote your great ... theme ... song???

 

Lyrics ©1979 BJ Leiderman Music
