apologies to Eric Idle

The bed is warm and dry
But it’s cold and damp outside
The big kids ate all the good cereal
When she’s eating her cold pop-tart
All smiles, happy singing
‘Cause this’ll help others feel happy too…

And…Amy woke on the good side of the bed…
Amy rose from the happy side of the bed…

If your socks are too itchy
There’s something you can do
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing
The school’s clay is all yellow
That doesn’t matter
Just swing your hips and wiggle – that’s the thing

And…Amy woke on the good side of the bed…
Amy rose from the happy side of the bed…

Though being four is hard
You don’t always get your way
You have to share and wait till it’s your turn
Just take your bubble bath – brush your teeth and then
The fun always ends when you’re sent to bed

So try to wake on the good side of the bed
Even when you barfed just the night before

Mom’s not always fair
Your brother pulls your hair
Hand-me-down clothes are not always pink
With chocolate milk to drink
Even spilled in your shoe
Today was an adventure, too

And…Amy woke on the good side of the bed…
Amy rose from the happy side of the bed…
(Go ahead and wake your sister up!)
Amy woke on the good side of the bed…
Amy woke on the good side of the bed…
(Could have woke to a wet bed, you know.)
Amy woke on the good side of the bed…
(I mean – what good is being a grump?)
(You know, every day is new – you’re always starting fresh
What can you do? Anything!)
Amy woke on the good side of the bed…
