What a Wonderful World

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 colors of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky.

Are also on the faces,

Of people going by,
I see friends shaking hands.

Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying,
"I love you."

I hear babies cry,
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.
