Since I am not a native speaker of English, I have always been intrigued by the pronunciation: "Good morning, good morning, good morningAH".

Why do they do this? Is this for comic effect? Does it sound ridiculously posh or something?

Might be a little comic poshness there,  but I think it's just done for musical effect - adding that extra syllable just to help emphasize the rhythm of the song.

The following people thank Von Bontee for this post:

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
