About the song
This song grew out of a comment I made in the thread of a Facebook friend. My friend quoted a Syd Barrett lyric – “Pluto was not discovered until 1930” -- and I replied, “Yeah, but the sun wasn’t discovered till it started shining in the morning.”

As soon as I wrote my comment, I knew it was a song. I instantly came up with a clap-along melody to go with the line and then sped it up into alt-pop. I recorded it last Sunday (10/13/13).
Lyrics
THE SUN WASN’T DISCOVERED (TILL IT STARTED SHININ’ IN THE MORNING)
Music and lyrics by Paul Iorio
Copyright 2013

Alpha Centauri was discovered by a priest
Who was looking for some action, driven to distraction
The Earth was found by the brontosaurus genus
And Nothingness discovered on Daytona Beaches

The sun wasn’t discovered till it started
Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’
The sun wasn’t discovered till it started
Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’

Neptune was found in 1846
And Pluto was discovered in celestial sticks
The moon was thought to be the eye of god
Until the age of the tripod, long before the iPod

The sun wasn’t discovered till it started
Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’

The sun wasn’t discovered till it started
Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’

The sun wasn’t discovered till it started
Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’

Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’
Shinin’ in the mornin’
