50 Song Lyrics To Start Your Day With

Despite what people say, the morning is absolutely not the "best part of the day". If we could rise at the leisurely hour of, say, midday, we would be considerably more refreshed and happy (and we'd still be up in time for Neighbours).

But, sadly, the daily grind is what we face, so we can at least try and be positive about it, and carpe diem. To aid you in this quest, we have kindly compiled 50 song lyrics to get you off and running, with a "can-do" attitude. Think of it as aural Shredded Wheat.
