Katie Melua and Eva Cassidy - What A Wonderful World Lyrics

I see trees that are green,
red roses too
I watch 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 days,
the dark sacred nights
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 the people passing by

I see friends
shakin’ hands,
saying “How do you do?”
They’re really saying
“I love you”

Colors of the rainbow,
so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
of the people passing by

I see friends
shakin’ hands,
saying “How do you do?”
They’re really saying
“I love you”

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

Yes, I think to myself,
what a wonderful world

“What a Wonderful World” is a song by Bob Thiele and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released as a single in early fall 1967. Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate in the U.S. (and written specifically for Armstrong, who had broad crossover appeal), the song details the singer’s delight in the simple enjoyment of everyday life. The song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future, with reference to babies being born into the world and having much to look forward to. The song was not initially a hit in the States, where it sold fewer than 1,000 copies, but was a major success in the UK, reaching number one on the UK singles chart. It was also the biggest-selling single of 1968 in the UK. The song made Louis Armstrong the oldest male to top the charts, at sixty-six years and ten months old.
