1. Good morning, Merry Sunshine!
How do you wake so soon?
You've frightened all the stars
Away and shined away the moon.
I saw you go to sleep last night,
Before I stopped my playing.
How did you get way over there
And where have you been staying?
2. I never go to sleep, Dear Child,
I just go round to see
The little children of the East
Who rise and watch for me.
I waken all the birds and trees
And flowers on my way
And then, come back to see the child
Who stayed out late to play.
