Carolina in the Morning

VERSE 1

Wishing is good time wasted,
Still it's a habit they say;
Wishing for sweets I've tasted,
That's all I do all day.
Maybe there's nothing in wishing,
But speaking of wishing I'll say:

REFRAIN

" Nothing could be finer
Than to be in Carolina
In the morning.
No one could be sweeter
Than my sweetie when I meet her
In the morning.
Where morning glories
Twine around the door,
Whispering pretty stories
I long to hear once more.
Strolling with my girlie
Where the dew is pearly early
In the morning,
Butterflies all flutter up
And kiss each little buttercup
At dawning.
If I had Aladdin's lamp for only a day,
I'd make a wish and here's what I'd say:
" Nothing could be finer
Than to be in Carolina
In the morning." "

VERSE 2

Dreaming was meant for nighttime,
I live in dreams all the day;
I know it's not the right time,
But still I dream away.
What could be sweeter than dreaming,
Just dreaming and drifting away.

REPEAT REFRAIN
