So Smooth ~ 1955
 
 
It's a Good Day
 
Oh! It's a good day, for singin' a song,
An' it's a good day for movin' along,
Yes, it's a good day, how could anything go wrong?
A good day from mornin' 'till night!
 
Yes it's a good day, ( it's a lovely day for shinin' )
for shinin' your shoes
An' it's a good day ( if you wan' a silver linin' )
for losin' the blues
( You got . . . ) Everything t' gain
( everythin' t' gain and nuthin' ) and nuthin' t' lose,
'Cuz it's a good day from mornin' to night!
( You're right! )
 
I said to the sun, "Good Mornin' Sun!"
"Rise an' shine t'day!"
You kno' you gotta get goin'
if you're gonna make a showin'
And you kno' you got the right of way!
 
'Cause it's a good day for payin' your bills,
And it's a good day for curin' your ills,
So, take a deep breath, throw away all your pills,
'Cause it's a good day from mornin' 'till night!
 
( Just this very day, I said to the sun, "Good Mornin' Sun!"
"Rise an' shine, why don't you rise and shine?" )
You kno' you gotta get goin'
if you wanna make a showin'
And you kno' you've got the right of way!
 
'Cause it's a good day for payin' your bills,
And it's a ' gooood ' day for curin' your ills,
So, take a deep breath ( Ahhh! )
throw away all your pills,
'Cause it's a good day from mornin' 'till night!
( Say that again! )
Oh it's a good day from mornin' 'till night
( That's what he said! )
Yes it's a good day from mornin' 'till night!
