Kanye West - Good Morning

Good morning [x4]

Wake up, Mr. West, Mr. West, Mr. Fresh
Mr. By-his-self-he-so-impressed
I mean, damn, did you even see the test
You got D's mother fucker, D's, Rosie Perez
And yes, barely pass any and every class
Looking at every ass
Cheated on every test
I guess this is my dissertation
Homie, this shit is basic
Welcome to graduation

Good morning
Good morning
Good morning
Good morning

Good morning
On this day we become legendary
Everything we dreamed of
I'm like a fly Malcolm X
Buy any jeans necessary
Detroit wear cleaned up
From the streets of the league
From an eigth to a key
But you graduate when you make it up outta the streets
From the moments of pain
Look how far we done came
Haters saying ya changed
Now ya doing ya thing

Good morning
Good morning
Good morning
Good morning

Good morning
Look at the valedictorian scared of the future
While I hop in the Delorean
Scared-to-face-the-world complacent career student
Some people graduate, but we still stupid
They tell you read this, eat this, don't look around
Just peep this, preach us, teach us, Jesus
Okay, look up now, they done stole your streetness
After all of that, you receive this

Good morning
Hustlers, that's if you're still living
Get on down
Every time that we hear them
Good morning
Hustlers, that's if you're still living
Get on down
Every time that we hear them
Good morning
Hustlers, that's if you're still living
Get on down
Every time that we hear them
Good morning
Hustlers, that's if you're still living
Get on down

Get on down
Get, get on down
Get on down
Get, get on down

"Good Morning" is a song by American hip-hop artist Kanye West. It serves as the opener for his third studio album, 2007's Graduation. The song was produced by West and layers moody synthesizer lines and boom-bap drums over a chopped vocal sample of "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" as sung by Elton John. It also contains background vocals provided by Connie Mitchell and Tony Williams, concluding with a vocal sample of JAY-Z taken from his own album intro track, "The Ruler's Back". Lyrically, the album establishes the themes of motivation and inspiration in the face of adversity, mixing classic hip-hop braggodocio with an undercurrent of introspection and self-criticism. "Good Morning" received rave reviews from contemporary music critics, who praised its production as well as West's wordplay. Though not released as a single, a music video directed by visual artist Takashi Murakami (who also designed the album's artwork) was produced for the track.
