good morning, starshine!

for the life of me, i do not know why. but the other morning, i woke up with “good morning, starshine” in my head. my high school choir sang this really goofy and weird song (60s? must have been), and apparently the lyrics were still in my head, even though i haven’t heard them in years, and haven’t sun it in a very long time. i was walking through the house, singing it at full voice, freaking out my kids.

so, here, for your reading pleasure, are the stunningly odd lyrics. dude, seriously, someone was smokin’ something when they wrote these babies. how this ever became i hit song, i do not quite know (but, maybe it has something to do with the fact that it’s still in my head almost 30 years after i sang it in high school choir, which is more than i can say for lots of other songs with less-trippy lyrics!)

Good morning starshine
The earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy glub gloopy
Nibby nabby noopy
La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba nabba
Le le lo lo
Tooby ooby walla
Nooby abba naba
Early morning singing song

Good morning starshine

You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy glub gloopy

La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba nabba
Le le lo lo
Tooby ooby walla
Nooby abba naba

  1. Seriously, that is some sweet cheeba they must have been partaking when they came up with that one… But, it begs the question, what in the world made you come up with that one, early in the morning? WOW!

  2. The song was a hit because it’s from the soundtrack of the hit Broadway musical “Hair” which opened in 1968. It’s a song of simple joy in the wonder of creation around us. It’s fun.

    Relax. Enjoy. Don’t get all “adult” and over think.

  3. I was going to say most of what said…about it coming from “Hair” because the musical had a 2-3 hits from the show on the charts…which is sick and twisted I know this as the musical opened before I was born…but I think the hits came as a result of the movie when I was a toddler! :)

    “Afternoon Delight” came from “Hair” as well as one other song and I can’t remember the title.

  4. Friar_Tuck – I get the impression that Marko’s children are just as delightfully “odd” as Marko is. They would only freak if you put them in a normal house.

    I envy them….. :)

  5. Mentioning Afternoon Delight (thanks Deneice)… that is the very first “pop” song that I can remember. That might explain a few things. But it isn’t from Hair. It is from the Starland Vocal Band a few years later.

    Were you thinking Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In (later released by The Fifth Dimension)?

  6. No…I thought it was in the movie version…but yeah…I probably did mean Aquarius…though there is still one more song from the movie that hit the charts. I need to look at a list. Not to mention it has been years since I have seen the movie.

  7. We want to send our some report of Bangladesh Youth, please give us your email.
    Please pray for Bangladesh.

  8. Lord please help Marko’s kids not to be scarred for life or scared of him.

    This song belongs on Yo Gobba Gobba or whatever that horrible show is called.
