Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin'

Oklahoma Countryside
Oklahoma Countryside
   This song belongs to the soundtrack of the musical film Oklahoma (1955); I must have seen this film many many years ago as I really don't remember now, however the melody and the chorus has remained during all this time on my mind. I even believed for some time that it belonged to Seven brides for seven brothers, as the melody is very similar to Wonderful Day. Actually, I use to sing it to myself whenever I'm glad or I feel like singing. One night, at listening to the radio, it was played and it was named Oklahoma as the film of the song, so I decided to put it here.
 
Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin'

There's a bright golden haze on the meadow 
There's a bright golden haze on the meadow 
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye, 
An' it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky. 

Oh, what a beautiful mornin', 
Oh, what a beautiful day. 
I got a beautiful feelin' 
Ev'rything's goin' my way. 

All the cattle are standin' like statues 
All the cattle are standin' like statues 
They don't turn their heads as they see me ride by, 
But a little brown mav'rick is winkin' her eye. 

Oh, what a beautiful mornin', 
Oh, what a beautiful day. 
I got a beautiful feelin' 
Ev'rything's goin' my way. 

A
ll the sounds of the earth are like music 
All the sounds of the earth are like m
usic 
The breeze is so busy it don't miss a tree, 
And a ol' weepin' willer is laughin' at me! 

Oh, what a beautiful mornin', 
Oh, what a beautiful day. 
I got a beautiful feelin' 
Ev'rything's goin' my way. 
Oh, what a beautiful day!
Music by Richard Rodgers - Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
