"I Got the Sun in the Mornin' (and the Moon at Night)" is a song from the 1946 musical Annie Get Your Gun, written by Irving Berlin and originally performed by Ethel Merman.[1]

Other singers to have recorded the song include Betty Hutton (in the movie version of Annie Get Your Gun), Bernadette Peters, Doris Day, Judy Garland[2] and June Christy with the Stan Kenton Orchestra.

The Cheers episode, "Unplanned Parenthood" first aired on October 24, 1991, begins with the character of Carla Tortelli opening the bar and starting the jukebox, playing "I Got the Sun in the Mornin'" to which she uncharacteristically sings and dances.

In the Hawaii Five-0 episode, "Hau'oli La Ho'omaika'i," first aired on November 22, 2013, guest star Carol Burnett ends the show by singing the song.[3]
