"WAY TO WAKE UP"

Verse 1
There are two ways to wake up in the morning.
One is complaining, moaning and a-groaning.
Pull up the sheets back over your face,
And wish that the day would just go away.

Chorus 1
But that’s no way, way, way, way, way
To wake up in the morning!
And that’s no way, way, way, way, way
To wake up every day!

Verse 2
Or you can wake up, -eager for what the day brings,
With a great big smile, and thankful for everything!
You’re so excited and challenged by the new day,
You’ve just invited -happiness in to stay!

Chorus 2
Yes, that’s the way, way, way, way, way
To wake up in the morning!
That’s the way, way, way, way, way
To wake up everyday!

Bridge
This is a lesson that we all need to learn,
That your day goes the way
The corners of your mouth turn.
So face the new day with a song and a smile,
And I know you’ll be happy all the while!

Verse 3
What will others see when you first wake up?
An effort to be cheerful,
Or a look that’s cold and gruff?
Being clean and tidy -is so important,
But what matters most is the way you wake up!

Chorus 3
Yes, it’s the way, way, way, way, way
You wake up in the morning!
It's the way, way, way, way, way
You wake up everyday!
