Good Morning Starshine by Oliver

Oliver Good Morning Starshine

Pop Rock

And a gliddy glup gloopy to you. This song from the 1967 pop-rock musical Hair was written by James Rado, Gerome Ragni, and Galt MacDermot. It is in the second act, sung by the character Sheila. Oliver recorded it in 1969. Bob Crew (known for his work with The Four Seasons, The Rays, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Freddy Cannon, Lesley Gore, Michael Jackson, Bobby Darin, Roberta Flack, Barry Manilow, The Bob Crewe Generation, and oh so many more) produced it. The song went to #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, #3 on the U.S. Adult Contemporary Chart, #1 in Canada, and #6 in the U.K. It sold more than one million copies and was awarded an RIAA gold record.

Oliver was William Oliver Swofford, who was born in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. He had clean-cut good looks. Another of his hits was “Jean,” which was the theme for the 1969 film The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.

Here are the lyrics:

“Good morning starshine
The earth says, “Hello”
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy glup gloopy
Nibby nabby noopy la la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba

Nooby abba nabba le le lo lo
Tooby ooby walla nooby abba nabba
Early morning singing song

Good morning starshine
There’s love in your skies
Reflecting the sunlight In my lover’s eyes

Good morning starshine
So happy to see
My love and me as we sing

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy glup gloopy
Nibby nabby noopy la la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba

Nooby abba nabba le le lo lo
Tooby ooby walla nooby abba nabba
Early morning singing song

Can you hear me
Singing a song, loving a song
Singing a song, loving a song
Laughing a song, singing a song

Sing the song, song the sing
Song, song, song, sing
Sing, sing, sing, song
Song, song, song, sing
Sing, sing, sing, song

Sing song sing a song
Yeah you sing a sing a song…”
