Marissa Jaret Winokur - Good Morning Baltimore Lyrics

"Good Morning Baltimore" is a song from Hairspray the Broadway musical (2002). The music was written by Marc Shaiman with lyrics by Scott Wittman.

Oh, oh, oh
Woke up today
Feeling the way I always do
Oh, oh, oh
Hungry for something
That I can't eat
Then I hear the beat
The rhythm uptown
Starts calling me down
It's like a message from
High above
Oh, oh, oh
Pulling me out
To the smiles and the
Streets that I love

Good morning, Baltimore
Every day's like an open door
Every night is a fantasy
Every sound's like a symphony

Good morning, Baltimore
And someday when I take to the floor
The world's gonna wake up and see
Baltimore and me

Oh, oh, oh
Look at my hair
What "do" can compare with mine today?
Oh, oh, oh
I've got my hairspray and radio
I'm ready to go

The rats on the street
All dance around my feet
They seem to say
"Tracy, it's up to you"
So, oh, oh
Don't hold me back
'Cause today all my dreams will come true

Good morning, Baltimore
There's the flasher who lives next door
There's the bum on his bar room stool
They wish me luck on my way to school

Good morning, Baltimore
And someday when I take to the floor
The world's gonna wake up and see
Baltimore and me

I know every step
I know every song
I know there's a place where I belong
I see all those party lights shining ahead
So someone invite me
Before I drop dead (before she drops dead)

So, oh, oh
Give me a chance
'Cause when I start to dance I'm a movie star
Oh, oh, oh
Something inside of me makes me move
When I hear the groove

My ma tells me no
But my feet tell me, "go"
It's like a drummer inside my heart
Oh, oh, oh
Don't make me wait
One more moment for my life to start
Good morning, good morning
Waiting for my life to start

I love you, Baltimore
Every day's like an open door
Every night is a fantasy
Every sound's like a symphony

And I promise Baltimore
That some day when
I take to the floor
The world's gonna wake up and see (see)
Gonna wake up and see (gonna wake up and see)
Baltimore and me (yes, more or less, we all agree)
Baltimore and me (someday the world is gonna see)
Baltimore and me
