TBT SOTD: It’s a Beautiful Morning

The Rascals – It’s a Beautiful Morning

On our Throwback Thursday Songs of the Day, we usually dig up something a little more obscure, and certainly a little harder edged, but today is the perfect day for this classic from The Rascals.  I recently interviewed Eddie Money and he mentioned how talented and under-appreciated Felix Cavaliere was and it seemed a good time to honor one of his gems.


In the late 60’s, The Rascals were a hugely popular American rock band, and they were known for delivering positive, upbeat songs and hopeful lyrics. With social media and mainstream replete with loudmouth hate-filled extremists, and a general negative vibe in the world these day, it feels like a good time for some positivity, and this is the perfect song to set your brain in the right frame of mind.

It’s an exuberant song with a sumptuous melody and infectious lyrics.  Turn off CNN, check it out and put a smile on your face.

It’s a Beautiful Morning Lyrics

It’s a beautiful mornin’
I think I’ll go outside a while,
An just smile.
Just take in some clean fresh air, boy
Ain’t no sense in stayin’ inside
If the weather’s fine and you got the time.
It’s your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day.
Either way,
It’s a beautiful mornin’
Each bird keeps singin’ his own song.
So long
I’ve got to be on my way, now.
Ain’t no fun just hangin’ around,
I’ve got to cover ground, you couldn’t keep me down.
It just ain’t no good if the sun shines
When you’re still inside,
Shouldn’t hide, still inside, shouldn’t hide,
There will be children with robins and flowers;
Sunshine caresses each new waking hour.
Seems to me that the people keep seeing
More and more each day, gotta say, lead the way,
It’s okay, wednesday, thursday, it’s okay,
Monday, wednesday, friday, weekday
