LYRICS

Grateful Dead “Good Mornin’ Little School Girl” Lyrics

Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with you?
Tell your mama and your papa I’m a little schoolboy too
Come on now pretty baby I just can’t help myself
You’re so young and pretty I don’t need nobody else

Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with you?
Don’t you hear me crying?

I’m gonna leave you baby about the break of day
On account of the way you treat me, I got to stay away
Come on now pretty baby darling com on home
You know I love you baby, I got to get you all alone

Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with you?
Don’t you hear me crying?

I’m gonna buy me an airplane and fly all over your town
Tell everybody baby, lord knows you’re fine
Come on pretty baby now, I just can’t help myself
You’re so young and pretty I don’t need nobody else

Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with you?
Don’t you hear me crying?

Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with you?
Good morning little schoolgirl, can I come home with you?
Tell your mama and your papa I’m a little schoolboy too
I’m a schoolboy, too. Hey, I’m a schoolboy, too
I want to be your chauffeur, I want to ride your little machine
I want to be your chauffeur, I want to ride your little machine
I want to put a tiger, baby I want to put a tiger, baby
I want to put a tiger, baby, hey in your sweet little tank

Hey baby now yes I do ha, yes I do
Hey I got to hey, I got to come on home with you
Tell your mama, tell your papa, tell your mama and your papa
Hey, I’m a schoolboy, too, hey, hey, I’m a schoolboy, too
Ha oww, I’m a schoolboy, too, ow, I wanna keep your company
Hey I wanna keep your company

The Grateful Dead archive has shared a second single that will be included on a 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the band’s debut LP. The release will feature remastered sound and bonus tracks from two concerts that happened in Vancouver during July of 1966.

Listen to the Dead perform a bluesy version of Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Good Mornin’ Little School Girl” from July 29, 1966. This follows an official release of “Standing On The Corner.”

Crisp sound and a spirited performance allows this version to stand out and give you a sense of the band’s bluesy roots. Highlighting this track is Ron “Pigpen” McKernan’s passionate vocal delivery and skillful harmonica playing. The song was a staple during the band’s formative years and included on the self-titled 1967 debut album, but played only one time between 1970 and 1992.

Pick up Grateful Dead (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) on Amazon (2CD / Vinyl). It’s scheduled to be released on January 20, 2017.
