Lyrics

Rise and shine, rise and shine
When you're happy, you're doing fine
When you're up
You can't be down
You'll never make a million if you're wearing a frown

Rise and shine, valentine
Dreams are blooming on a wishing mine
Just a touch, you'll dream a match
It doesn't hurt to count your chicks before they can hatch

My my, what a wonderful day
Sunshine, birds are singing away
True blue sky, making everything bright and gay
All you gotta do is
Rise and shine, wear a grin
Now's the season of wearing thin
Throw your troubles away
Come on and rise and shine
It's a wonderful day

My my, what a wonderful day
Sunshine, birds are singing away
True blue sky, making everything bright and gay
All you gotta do is
Rise and shine, give a grin
Now's the season of wearing thin
Throw your troubles away
Come on and rise and shine
It's a wonderful day

Notes/Trivia

  • It was released on the Golden Records 78 rpm children's record release, Songs of the Flintstones with lyrics.
  • The tune resembled "The Bugs Bunny Overture (This Is It!)", the theme song from The Bugs Bunny Show, also airing on ABC at the time, and may have been the reason the theme was changed in the third season.
