[Applejack]
Before the sun comes up
You gotta start your rocket boosters
Rise and shine, I'm feelin' fine
Wake up, Mr. Rooster
The early bird gets the worm
The sunrise makes me squirm
Oh, keepin' busy is keepin' good
Keep on goin' just like you should
Call me crazy, misunderstood
But you won't hear me complain
'Cause I got time to spare
Fun to share
My friends along
A job well done by the break of daaaaawn
So many things need gettin' done
Around the neighborhood
So, get to work and get it done
Before the gettin' goin' gets good
Most people dread the grit and grime
But elbow grease works every time
Keepin' busy is keepin' good
Keep on goin' just like you should
Call me crazy, misunderstood
But you won't hear me complain
'Cause I got time to spare
Fun to share
My friends along
A job well done by the break of dawn
Count my chickens, milk the cows
Hang those lights, I'll show ya how
Invite my friends, clean the barn
This is so excitin'!
Strum a guitar and sing this yarn!
Keepin' busy is keepin' good
Keep on goin' just like you should
Call me crazy, misunderstood
But you won't hear me complain (Yee-haw!)
'Cause I got time to spare
I got fun to share
My friends along
A job well done by the break of dawn
Keepin' busy is keepin' good
Keep on goin' just like you should
Call me crazy, misunderstood
But you won't hear me complain
'Cause I got time to spare
I got fun to share
My friends along
A job well done by the break of daaaaawn
