- Danced the whole night through

- Good morning, good morning to you

- Good morning, good morning to you

- How do you do, do, do?

- I said good morning

- See, the sun is shining

- A good morning

Hear the birdies sing

- It's great to stay up late

- It's great to stay up late

- Good morning, good morning to you

- Good morning, good morning to you

When the band began to play

The stars were shining bright

Now the milkman's on his way

It's too late to say good night

Good morning, good morning

Sunbeams will soon smile through

Good morning, good morning

Sell it, Ma, sell it.

Good morning, my darling, to you

- How was it?

- Where did you swipe that?

Oh, quit your kidding.

Words and music by Michael Z. Moran.

Why, it'll sweep the country. Won't it?

- Nothing very new there, Mickey.

- Oh, what good is new?

It's the same old rose

you see every year.

But it's just a little fresher,

but it's the same thing, isn't it?

- How many have you brought me, Mickey?

- I brought you five that you didn't publish.

But I ain't mad,

I'm gonna give you another chance, see?

You can't be wrong all the time,

nobody is.

- How much do you want for it?

- The usual, 1000.

I'll give you 100.

- A hundred.

- A hundred.

- Honest?

- Oh, that's wonderful.

Mickey, he's gonna publish it.

He is.

Oh, he's fainted. Quick, get some water.

He's... Get some water.

Oh, Mickey, please speak to me.

Wake up. Oh, dear.

It was too much for him.

He couldn't believe it.

Good thing I didn't say yes

to the thousand...

...or he'd have dropped dead.

- Yeah.

Are you all right, Mickey?

Speak to me, Mickey.

- What happened?

- Mr. Randall's gonna publish your song.

Look, here's your advance check

for $ 100.

Gee, Mr. Randall,

you don't know what this means to me.
