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

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
