Remember the rush to get ready? The deliberation over sweater colors? Today’s groovy track comes courtesy of Jacqueline Taieb, a ’60s French pop singer whose morning worries still sound contemporary. Getting ready in the morning has hardly changed at all.

It’s seven in the morning, I’ve gotta get up
Oh, I’m so tired
Well, let’s put some music on; it will get me going
Don’t know, something like,
“Talkin’ bout my g-g-generation”

Can’t find my toothbrush,
Where on earth can it be?
Uh, the red one is my father’s,
the blue one is my mother’s,
the yellow one is my brother’s –
Mine must have gone with the wind

It’s, uh, Monday, isn’t it?
Oh, I have an English exam today
Mmm, I wish I had Paul McCartney–
to help me

I feel like playing a record just to annoy the neighbors
Who are always complaining
What about good Elvis Presley?
Oh, but the only thing he can say is
“bop bop-a-loo-bop, a-wop bam-boom ah!”

A little work on my face, and off I go
I’m feeling better, I’m almost on my way
Uh, which sweater shall I wear today?
The blue one? The red one?
