This was released as a single by the eccentric singer-songwriter Kevin Ayers in 1970. However, my version was inspired by a live performance I saw recently by Gruff Rhys (formerly singer with the Welsh group Super Furry Animals). Gruff actually played it three times during his set (because it was April the 1st?!). Though he played one song in Spanish, he needed an interpreter to communicate with the Spanish crowd.
This is my singable Spanish version rather than a literal translation. In fact, it’s a bilingual version, so try and sing along!
SINGING A SONG IN THE MORNING Singing a song in the morning Singing it again at night I don’t even know what I’m singing about But it makes me feel I feel alright (yeah, yeah) It makes me feel I feel alright
CÁNTALA POR LA MAÑANA Cántala por la mañana Cántala por la noche Cuando la canto Que bien me siento Qué significa yo no lo sé (no sé) Qué significa yo no lo sé
