So Early in the Morning

I just want a Pushcart Prize
Pushcart Prize
Pushcart Prize
I just want a Pushcart Prize
So early in the morning

I lie in bed and pray for one
Pray for one
Pray for one
I lie in bed and pray for one
So early in the morning

I jump out of bed and start the brew
Start the brew
Start the brew
I jump out of bed and start the brew
So early in the morning

I leap back in under the sheets
Under the sheets
Under the sheet
I leap back in under the sheets
So early in the morning

I just want a Pushcart Prize
Pushcart Prize
Pushcart Prize
I just want a Pushcart Prize
So early in the morning
