In The Mornin’

from the CD Albert and Gage - Cry Love  (MoonHouse Records)

I can hear that rooster crowin'
And it's messin' with my snorin'
In the mornin' I don't want to get up
In the mornin' get some coffee in my cup
I can hear that rooster crowin'
Makes me mad

I can hear my neighbor's Harley
And his basset hound named Charley
In the mornin' I don't want to get up
In the mornin' get some coffee in my cup
I can hear my neighbor's Harley
Makes me mad

            I was dreaming of the South of France
            You were in a negligee
            We were toasting with a fine champagne
            On a balcony overlooking Saint Tropez

I can hear my wife a workin'
Ain't no duties that she's shirkin'
In the mornin' I don't want to get up
In the mornin' get some coffee in my cup
I can hear my wife a workin'
Makes me mad

Got a headache from the vino
I might need a cappuccino
In the mornin' I don't want to get up
In the mornin' get some coffee in my cup
Got a headache from the vino
Makes me mad

            Maybe I should hit the snooze alarm
            Sleep's the best thing for my head
            Darlin' you could make my dream come true
            If only you would get back into bed

I can smell the bacon fryin'
Can't believe that I've been whinin'
In the mornin' I don't want to get up
In the mornin' get some coffee in my cup
I can smell the bacon fryin' makes me
glad

Yeah the mornin' sun a' shinin's not so bad
