I felt it on first opening my eyes.
In the air was something electric.
An ordinary day, but in disguise.
Something secret, something hectic.
Today I know will be that day
When my whole life will change.
It’s been mostly hard all this way.
Now life is going to rearrange.
No more sleeping in the gutter.
No more eating off the floor.
From now on it’s rolls with butter,
And “Yes, I will have some more.”
I've got an angel on my shoulder.
I've got Heaven on my side.
Every minute I'm getting bolder.
Here I come! Better open wide!
I don’t know what I’ll be winning.
But winning I will be.
If happiness is sinning,
I'm doomed for eternity.
If you want come on along.
Just don’t stand there in my way.
‘Cause, by God, I'm feeling strong.
There’s something in the air today!
