I’ve Got the Sun in the Morning…

Got no check books, got no banks. Still I’d like to express my thanks — I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night. 

 
    ~ Irving Berlin
 
 
 Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.
 
     ~ Colossians 3:17
 
Just feeling thankful for the sun in morning and the moon at night…and you.
 
I Got the Sun in the Morning 
 

Taking stock of what I have and what I haven’t
What do I find?
The things I got will keep me satisfied
Checking up on what I have and what I haven’t
What do I find?
A healthy balance on the credit side

[1st refrain:]
Got no diamond, got no pearl
Still I think I’m a lucky girl
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Got no mansion, got no yacht
Still I’m happy with what I’ve got
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Sunshine gives me a lovely day
Moonlight gives me the Milky Way

Got no checkbooks, got no banks
Still I’d like to express my thanks
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night
And with the sun in the morning
And the moon in the evening
I’m all right

[2nd refrain:]
Got no butler, got no maid
Still I think I’ve been overpaid
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night
-I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Got no silver, got no gold
What I got can’t be bought or sold
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night
-I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Sunshine gives me a lovely day
Moonlight gives me the Milky Way

Got no heirlooms for my kin
Made no will but when I cash in
I leave the sun in the morning and the moon at night
And with the sun in the morning
And the moon in the evening they’re all right

[3rd refrain:]
Got no mansion, got no yacht
Still I’m happy with what I’ve got
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Got no silver, got no gold
What I got can’t be bought or sold
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Sunshine gives me a lovely day
Moonlight gives me the Milky Way

Got no checkbooks, got no banks
Still I’d like to express my thanks
I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night
And with the sun in the morning
And the moon in the evening
I’m all right
