Good Morning to YOU!

My mother used to sing to me a song to wake me up. She would come into my room, lean over my bed and open the blinds before bursting into song. Good Morning To You Good Morning TO YOU! We're all in our places with sunshiney faces Good Morning To You Good Morning TO YOU! I am sure there was a second verse, or an additive in there somewhere, but this was the song I was awoken to every school morning as a child. I love and miss my mother dearly, but she could not sing. Still what I would not give to hear her sing this one more time. I hope your Christmas Morning is going well. what is something ( a memory) that has come to your mind this AM?

Sent Off? To a reform / boarding type place?

@PhredWreck I do not think they have anything like that anymore. My brother was in a place called Charter several times when I was a child. He was going through a lot with his bipolar and teenage hormones on top of that. It was safer for him there.

Good morning to you an a happy wonderful Christmas. The only song that spring to mind with "Good Morning" is the one in singing in the rain.

Ah yes I've heard that plenty! Pretty sure it was used in part for a commercial in the 90's, but can't remember the brand. Very catchy but I could not dance like that without twisting an ankle!

I had not heard of this song before your post, so I popped over to good old YouTube and listened to a young woman sing it and then viewed a few others but they all seemed only to have the words you included in your post. I went and searched under the lyrics and the Steve Miller band had a version that sounds similar to this and the bit your mum sung sounds like it could be the chorus. https://youtu.be/UzvAWKutRwo
A welcoming song to use in the morning! I have used this as an introduction to gather large family audiences, as well as with playgroups and classrooms where...

It may have been. As for the added lines, mom did like to make up her own lyrics so it could have been just that. Thank you for sharing the song.

You know, there is nothing in my memory chest box that would indicate a great or bad Christmas. I never had one that made a big impression on me.

Ah, I suppose I wasn't very open with my question. It doesn't necessarily have to be Christmas related, just something you've thought of / remembered recently.
