Track Name: Morgan
Garrett, it's time to put your work aside and come into dinner now
When he returned he found his cloth polished and standing up, a surprise
This turned out to be the world's first hair straightening gel
But there was so much more that Mr. Morgan had in store

Get to know the man
A real inventor, man
Garrett Morgan

Traffic light, binary semaphore

When the men working underneath Lake Erie had their tunnel just explode
Garrett brought his safety hood and brother Frank and pulled the men to safer air
World War I broke out and now we know this as a gas mask
but there was so much more that Mr. Morgan had in store

Get to know the man
A real inventor, man
Garrett Morgan
Well, good mornin'
Garrett Morgan
Well, good mornin'!

Traffic light, binary semaphore
