I came home from my outdoor adventure to a documentary on New Orleans musical history called “Dancing in New Orleans”. It made me think of one of my favorite songs. Louis Armstrong singing “What a Wonderful World”.

Louis Armstrong

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 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
