Good Morning

Come, let us sing...


Good Morning
Music taken from Piano Lesson Made Easy Level 1

Good morning, Good morning, nice to see your smiling face;
Good morning, Good morning, to you and to you.

Hello Ben Jee, Hello John,
Hello Ten Nee, Hello Tom;
Good morning, Good morning, to you and to you.

The lyrics 'Good Morning' can be substituted with any subject or topic you have learned. For example:

How are you? How are you? How are you my little friend?
How are you? How are you? I hope you are fine.

Very, very, very fine.
Happy, happy all the time.
How are you? How are you? I hope you are fine.
