Verse:
Wish -ing is good time wast -ed, Still it's a hab -it they say;
Wish -ing for sweets I've tast -ed, That's all I do all day.
May -be there's noth -ing in wish -ing, But, speak -ing of wish -ing I'll say:
 
Chorus:
Noth -ing could be fin -er than to be in Car -o -lin -a in the morn -ing,
No -one could be sweet -er than my sweet -ie when I meet her in the morn -ing.
Where the morn -ing glo -ries Twine a -round the door,
Whis -per -ing pret -ty sto -ries I long to hear once more.
Stroll -ing with my girl -ie where the dew is pearl -ly ear -ly in the morn -ing,
But -ter -flies all flut -ter up and kiss each lit -tle but -ter -cup at dawn -ing,
If I had A --lad din's lamp for on -ly a day, I'd make a wish and here's what I'd say:
Noth -ing could be fin -er than to be in Car -o -lin -a in the morn -ing.
