There's a bright golden haze on the meadow, / There's a bright golden haze on the meadow. / The corn is as high as a elephant's eye, / And it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky. / Oh, what a beautiful mornin', / Oh, what a beautiful day! / I got a beautiful feelin' / Everything's goin' my way.
