I Like the Sunrise

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella at Duke's Place (1965).

I like the sunrise 'cause it brings a new day
I like a new day, it brings new hope, they say
I like the sunrise blazing in the new start
Night time is weary, oh and so am I

Every evening I wish upon a star
That my brand new bright tomorrow isn't very far
When that heavy blue curtain of night is raised up high
Way out of sight, I like the sunrise, oh heavenly day
I like the sunrise, I hope it lights for me

I like the sunrise, so heavenly to see
I like the sunrise, I hope it lights for me
