We have seen some of the weirdest videos on TikTok of late, noticeably with the song ‘Waking Up In The Morning’ sang by a crying child. So what does the trend mean and why are people using the video?
TikTokers are getting nostalgic with the latest music trend with the audio clip used in more than 249.7k videos right now, and it all started with one post on 11th January 2021. Stay tuned to find out more on the ‘Waking Up In The Morning’ TikTok trend.
The origin of the audio clip
Would you believe that this audio clip that is trending right now in For You section of TikTok is actually from a reality TV show called ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’?
This show is 5 seasons long, full of four affluent housewives who are living in New Jersey and about their exciting social and personal lives. The show will not teach you anything but it is a guilty pleasure of many people.
In the third season, one of the kids had an iconic moment that started this trend recently. Episode 16 was aired on 11th September 2011 when the oldest daughter of Teresa Giudice (one of the housewives), Gia, had an emotional moment.
Gia Giudice performed an original song in a family gathering to describe what she felt about her mom and uncle who were fighting at the time.
She started crying and after being consoled she sings this song. You can see the performance and everyone’s reaction in the video below.
This heartfelt moment was posted recently on TikTok by Amir Yass (@amiryassofficial) and it seems that it still means a lot to fans all these years later. Here is the post that started it all…
Lyrics of the song
Wake 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 make getting my clothes on
Walking into school thinking of what is going to happen
Things are just caught up in my mind just cannot get rid of them
I ain’t worrying and worrying I just cannot get rid of this
I cannot take chances it is just too much
Waking up in the morning going into school
Worrying and worrying it is just too much
