What a Wonderful World

What a Wonderful World  is a song written by Bob Thiele (as “George Douglas”) and George David Weiss.  It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released as a single in 1968.

Watch and listen to these two versions with splendid images from around the world.  The first is Louis Armstrong, then a spoken word version by Sir David Attenborough.

What a Wonderful World – Lyrics

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, 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, sayin’, “How do you do?”
They’re really sayin’, “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.
