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

I personally don't like this song, it's too slow, too naive and idealistic. It's not related to the voice of Louis Armstrong or his interpretation, i don't like any cover done either.

At a complete loss as to why anyone could rate this song a 1.

Quite possibly the most uplifting song I know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Satchmo ownes this song, all other versions fall short.
As wonderful as this song is, it's starting to be overplayed. I even hear it on regular radio on my drive to work.
This song always brings me around to remembering that today is just another day in Paradise.  Truly.

Good stuff this one is.

It seems that way, but if you tune out the media that focus on the sensational, shocking and tawdry (it sells — but not to me) and tune into the wonderful things big and small that are all around us in myriad forms, it is a wonderful world (and would be even more wonderful if more would tune out the negative stuff, I believe).

 
Right on Carl..good lesson for today. Props.
Sometimes its hard to feel this way...but sometimes you gotta see the beauty in the world. Thanks Louis!
Never mind the over-commercialized airplay, this is one of the greatest songs ever..!
This just has to be followed by Zippa-dee-doo-dah :o)
