Strawberry Alarm Clock - Good Morning Starshine Lyrics

Good morning starshine
The earth says "hello" (the earth says "hello")
You twinkle above us (twinkle above us)
We twinkle below (we twinkle below)
Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singin' song

Gliddy glub gloopy, nibby nabby noopy
La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba, nooby abba nabba
Le le lo lo
Tooby ooby walla, nooby abba nabba
Early morning singin' song

Good morning starshine
The earth says "hello" (the earth says "hello")
You twinkle above us (twinkle above us)
We twinkle below (we twinkle below)
Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singin' song

Singin' a song, lovin' a song
Singin' a song
Lovin' a song, laughin' a song
Singin' a song

Sing a song, song a-singing
Song song song sing...

Strawberry Alarm Clock Good Morning Starshine Comments
  1. finster1968

    Strawberry Alarm Clock was capable of much better music than this.

  2. rebel_rouser94

    This song is the musical equivalent of the politics of Marianne Williamson

  3. Colorado Old Man

    That was the shittest cover I’ve heard

    Dc Krow

    shit on your face and in your ears then

  4. Bit Bit Blocks

    Willy Wonka

  5. Billy Angus

    This is the first time I've heard The Strawberry Alarm Clock's rendition.
    I remember hearing Oliver's top single on the radio when I was 9 1/2.
    I'm sure it was covered by a number of artists.
    Regardless of who recorded it first, it's a classic.


    I do remember this version before Oliver's. Had this song going through my head while in the summer of '69 while in army basic training (no radios allowed). Hate to say it, but I do prefer Oliver's version.

  7. Frankie C

    I`ll take Oliver Swofford`s version over this any day IMO.

  8. wild Irish Rose Forever

    Great stuff! Love 60's music! ✌💗🍀🌹

  9. david cassin

    i have this cd its a great one love this version

  10. beerborn

    Oliver did a better version of this song.

  11. Sean Gessner

    Is that Chucky in the middle of the album cover?

    Derek Tyler

    That's Ed Fuckin' King

  12. Davin Gladwell

    Good version here. Sounds like The Association.

  13. Mike Drennan

    This song was best done by Spanky and Our Gang despite who wrote it!

  14. Tim Kline

    I don't know where you live but in Cincinnati this version of good morning starshine  was on the top 10 on the radio at least a year before the Oliver version. As far as I always knew, the Strawberry Alarm Clock did this song first.

    Davin Gladwell

    A woman sang this song too not a recent artist but someone from 45+ years ago.


    They both hit the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time in May 1969. It might have gotten local airplay ahead of that.

  15. fenderstratguy

    As bad as this song totally sucks (even the band hated it) this arrangement makes it even worse.
    Their producers should have been maimed for this.

  16. Itz Rodriguez

    This is the song to listen while drinking your first cup of coffee.

  17. Roswell Night

    WHAT THE FUCK. In the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the FIRST thing willy wonka says when greeting everyone is "Goodmorning Starshine, the earth says hello!" I'm literally mindfucked. Like what the actual fuck?!

    I.C. Vulpes

    Its an old song....

    tiner s

    +Roswell Night "what the actual fuck." I love it.

    Nancy Hahn

    I'll have to remember that one, LOL!

    Isaiah Not Help Him

    That one line made me love the movie

  18. FireLightning16

    I knew of this group because of Austin Powers

    Dc Krow

    love your parents

  19. Richard Ranke

    This is the first rendition I ever heard of this song in 1969.I quickly learned that it came from the musical Hair.I have heard many other people sing it since,but I always remembered this version.

  20. RedroomStudios

    this is the only song I dont like off this album... it's the only one that could be considered a pop tune while the rest are spaced out garage rock.  I have the original pressing from the 60's which features this group portrait with the fractal pattern over it in full colour on the back cover.  the front cover has a picture of the band standing in a post apocalyptic wasteland.


    I agree with you, man. I've listened to the rest of this album myself and compared to this it is loads better. Not to mention this one doesn't fit on the album at all, style-wise, and they were forced to write a hit (even though the album still commercially failed). The only reason I uploaded this was because the only other version on YouTube was 240p and had the intro to "Paint It, Black" on it for some reason.


    @McObscurities exactly.  thanks for the reply!

    Fragotron McFarland

    Thank you for that, man! I like the faster pace of this version, and it's a nostalgic Friday tonight. I had some good fun with this tune playing!

    You don't like the "gliddy glub gloopy" and "tooby ooby walla" bits? Well that's disappointing
