Roger Whittaker - New World in the Morning

Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning so they say
I, myself don't talk about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning, that's today

And I can feel a new tomorrow comin' on
And I don't know why I have to make a song
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning takes so long

I met a man who had a dream he'd had since he was twenty
I met that man when he was eighty-one
He said too many folks just stand and wait until the mornin'
Don't they know tomorrow never comes

And he would feel a new tomorrow coming on
And when he'd smile his eyes would twinkle up in thought
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning never comes

And I can feel a new tomorrow coming on
And I don't know why I have to make a song
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning takes so long
