Lyrics [verse]:
I HAD A DREAM
AND I'LL CONFESS
I HATED TO AWAKE,
I DREAMT
I WAS AN ANGEL
AT THE BIG GOLDEN GATE.
SAINT PETER SAID,
WHY HELLO THERE,
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
WE'VE GOT YOUR MANSION READY,
SO COME ON IN.
AND THEN HE RANG
FOR AN ANGEL
TO ACT AS A GUIDE,
AND I STRETCHED MY WINGS
A TIME OR TWO
TO LEARN HOW TO FLY.
[Chorus]:
OH IT'S A GREAT, GREAT MORNING,
YOUR FIRST DAY IN HEAVEN
WHEN YOU STROLL DOWN
THE GOLDEN AVENUE.
THERE ARE MANSIONS
LEFT AND RIGHT,
AND YOU THRILL TO EV'RY SIGHT,
AND THE SAINTS
ARE ALL A-SMILIN'
SAYIN',
HOWDY DO
TO YOU.
OH IT'S A GREAT, GREAT MORNING,
THAT FIRST DAY IN HEAVEN
WHEN YOU REALIZE
YOUR WORRYIN' DAYS
ARE THROUGH.
YOU'LL BE GLAD
YOU WEREN'T IDLE,
TOOK TIME
TO READ THE BIBLE,
IT'S A GREAT, GREAT MORNING
FOR YOU.
