Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Early in the Morning

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1965 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1993.

Early in the morning, not yet dawn,
Never was awake so early in the morn,
One star, two stars, all the rest gone,
Early in the morning.

Early in the morning, just before day,
I can hear the chipmunks rustle in the hay,
I can hear the rooster high far away,
Early in the morning.

I can smell the pine trees way over head,
I can smell the sweet water near to my bed,
I can smell the wood fire cooking up bread,
Early in the morning.
