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:
Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning,
Noone could be sweeter than my sweetie when I meet her in the morning.
Where the morning glories Twine around the door,
Whispering pretty stories I long to hear once more.
Strolling with my girlie where the dew is pearlly early in the morning,
Butterflies all flutter up and kiss each little buttercup at dawning,
If I had A-lad din'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.
