    Beatles Album: Sgt. Peppers lonely hearts club band : Track 11

    Year: 1967

    Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney

    Length: 2.35

    The lyrics of Good Morning, Good morning were as a result of John Lennon's laziness at the time of writing Sgt. Pepper. John liked to laze in bed all day and so his inspiration for the song came from an item that was close at hand; a box of corn flakes.

    The song was about having “nothing to say”, watching to much daytime TV, and cold memories of his early life. Although John Lennon does not have a high opinion of Good Morning, Good Morning, feeling that it was written at a time when he was a “drop out, and the song is pretty miserable, it seems a little more cheerful due to the animal sound effects that George Martin decided to add to the track.

    The main aspects of the song was inspired by a TV commercial for cornflakes which had the jingle 'good morning, good morning'.

    In addition to the animal sound effects added by George martin, the track also features brass instrumenst played by a group called sounds incorporated. John takes on the role of lead vocals on good morning, good morning and paul duets with him during the chorus.
