IT’S NICE TO GET UP IN THE MORNIN’
 
div
 
Oh ye'll never, never, never thrive lying in yer bed.
Early rising makes us wise I've often heard it said
I believe in that myself but as far as I can see
If early rising makes us wise, ye'll say the same as me.

Chorus: Oh it's nice to get up in the morning
When the sun begins to shine
Or four or five or six o clock
In the good old summer time.
When the snow is snowin'
And it's murky overhead
Oh it's nice to get up in the morning
But it's nicer to lie in bed.


Oh there's lots of folks that never work they hate the very name
And others would be idle if it wasn't just for shame
They say we should rise with the lark, well I believe that when
The lark that we should rise wi' doesn't get up till ten.

Chorus:

Oh my brither Jock's a baker and he sleeps a long wi' me
In the winter morn Jock has to rise and start his work at three
Before he gets his troosers on his legs are nearly numb
So while he's standing shiverin' I lie in bed and hum.
