What a Wonderful World

Blogroll Me!

I was driving in to work yesterday and one of the morning radio programs I tune into had a song request by a young girl for Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."

As I listened to the wonderful lyrics, I looked out of the car window at the gorgeous blue skies and the fluffy clouds of white, and could just visualize Louis with his jowly face, singing these lyrics and smiling his way through the words.

The song was over and I had to reach for a Kleenex. I found myself crying. Tears of happiness, sadness, disappointment, fear? Perhaps all of these...I'm not quite sure.


(George Weiss / Bob Thiele)

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?"
They're really saying "I love you"

I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Oh yeah
