A Catchy Little Tune

This simple four-line ditty was written as a classroom greeting in1893 by two sisters. Mildred Hill, a teacher at the Louisville, Kentucky Experimental Kindergarten, and Dr Patty Hill, the principal of the same school, together wrote the song for their five-year-old pupils.

The melody of the song was composed by Mildred, who was born in Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.A, on June 27th, 1859. The song was first published in 1893, with the lyrics written by her sister, Patty, as Good Morning To All.

Mildred was an expert on spiritual songs and played the organ in her local church, while Patty, who later became a professor at Columbia University, specialized in kindergarten education. Although the song was published in 1893, it wasn’t copyrighted until 1935. The copyright was taken out under a different name and it wasn’t renewed until 1963.

The song was popularised in the late 1930's when it was sung in the Broadway production of As Thousands Cheer, and has since become the mega-classic hit of all time.

In 1988, Birch Tree Group Ltd, the original publishers, sold the rights of the song, and all their other assets, to Warner Communications for an estimated $25 million.

During the 1980s, the song was believed to generate about $1 million in royalties annually. Along with Auld Lang Syne (sung at midnight on New Year’s Eve) and For He's a Jolly Good Fellow (sung to celebrate someone’s achievement), it is among the three most popular songs in the English language.

It continues to bring in around $2 million in licensing revenue each year, according to current publisher Warner Chappell.
