If you start a day with sounds of wind chimes and bells, maybe things will be all right. “A Beautiful Morning” was written by group members Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati. In 1968, it went to #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #36 on the Hot R&B Singles Chart. The song sold more than one million copies and was awarded an RIAA gold record. This was the first single with the group’s name as The Rascals, as they had formerly been The Young Rascals. They also released the song on their 1968 album Time Peace: The Rascals’ Greatest Hits. The Rascals formed in Garfield, New Jersey and were: Felix Cavaliere (vocals, keyboards), Eddie Brigati (vocals, percussion), Gene Cornish (vocals, guitar), and Dino Danelli (drums).

Here are the lyrics to “A Beautiful Morning” by The Rascals:

It’s a beautiful mornin’, ahhh
I think I’ll go outside a while
And jus’ smile
Just take in some clean fresh air, boy
Ain’t no sense in stayin’ inside
If the weather’s fine an’ you got the time
It’s your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day
Either way
It’s a beautiful mornin’, ahhh
Each bird keeps singin’ his own song
So long
I’ve got to be on my way, now
Ain’t no fun just hangin’ around
I’ve got to cover ground, you couldn’t keep me down
It just ain’t no good if the sun shines
When you’re still inside
Shouldn’t hide, still inside, shouldn’t hide
Ahhhh oh! (shouldn’t hide) ah ah oh

(Do do waaa, do do waaa)

There will be children with robins and flowers
Sunshine caresses each new waking hour
Seems to me that the people keep seeing
More and more each day, gotta say, lead the way
It’s okay, wednesday, thursday, it’s okay
(Ahhh) monday, wednesday, friday, weekday, ah ah ohhh

(Do do waaa)
Ah ah oh oh (do do aaaa)
Wooooo oo oo oh oh oh ah wo do waa
Ohhhhhhh oh oh oh…”

For another song by The Rascals: “People Got to be Free.” For songs for when they were The Young Rascals: “How Can I Be Sure,” “Groovin’,” and “Good Lovin’.”
