Song-A-Day: January 22

Happy Birthday today to Daniel Johnston! I’m a pretty big fan of the man but I understand that a lot of the material, especially early on, can be difficult or just plain poor. The man finds gems sometimes though, and his abilities as a songwriter have grown so much throughout his career as he gives his audience the viewpoint from a schizophrenic and manic depressive. Our Song-A-Day is going to take on a lighter tone than that though, as we’re going to go with one off of Respect entitled “Good Morning You”.

Good Morning You
You’ve got the world, what’s in your way
Good Morning You

Had to stop to think of something to say

You sat in the chair and your were there
You looked at the wall and started to stare

Good Morning You
What do you plan to do?

Good Morning You
Though you can hardly move

You sat in a chair and you were scared
There’s so much you could do if you dared

Good Morning You
You’ve got the world, what’s in your way?
