"One Morning" as written by and Grant Lee Phillips....
One day I'm gonna swim this lake I swear it
I'm gonna swim it end to end
I'm bound to paddle on up river
out by the delta, where the fishing boats come in

One I'm gonna catch the biggest catfish
the one that always got away
Dust off the finest china dishes
we're gonna have them on a plate

One morning for the sunrise
one morning for the light
one morning for the mean old roaster has cried
one morning for the trucks roll
blowing their horn
we're gonna take the whole world
on by a storm

One day I'm gonna make a ton of money
I'm gonna tuck it in the bank
So we ain't ever going hungry
We'll have to add another safe

One morning for the sunrise
One morning for the light
One morning for the mean old rooster has cried
One morning for the trucks roll
blowing their horn
we're gonna take the whole world
on by a storm

Some day I'm gonna travel to the city
I might hop a trolley car
see them buildings tall as Everest
disappearing in the stars

One morning for the sunrise
One morning for the light
One morning for the mean old rooster has cried
One morning for the trucks roll
blowing their horn
we're gonna take the whole world
on by a storm
