Who sings the Waking up in The Morning song?

The song was originally written and sung by 10-year-old Gia Giudice on reality show The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Gia performs the song at her sister’s birthday party which happens in the third season of the show which aired in 2011.

The lyrics are about her parents Teresa and Joe Giudice, arguing with Melissa and Joe Gorga. They are as follows:

Waking up in the morning
Thinking about so many things
I just wish things would get better
I’m trying to get rid of them
But nothing seems to stay the same
Woke up in the morning
Doing my hair and makeup and getting my clothes on
Walking into school
Thinking about what’s going to happen next

Will Smith also made a video to the song. Speaking about it to E News, Gia said: “I had a bunch of friends sending me text messages saying ‘Will Smith was singing your song on Instagram,’ and when I saw it, I couldn’t believe it. I love Will Smith and I thought it was really cool that he did that.”
