Lyrics to "What a Wonderful World"

1970 Spoken Introduction Version

"Some of you young folks been saying to me," Hey Pops, what you mean 'What a wonderful world'?

How about all them wars all over the place? You call them wonderful?

And how about hunger and pollution? That ain't so wonderful either."

Well how about listening to old Pops for a minute. Seems to me, it aint the world that's so bad but what we're doin' to it.

And all I'm saying is, see, what a wonderful world it would be if only we'd give it a chance.

Love baby, love.

That's the secret, yeah.

If lots more of us loved each other, we'd solve lots more problems.

And then this world would be a gasser.

That's wha' ol' Pops keeps saying."

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!
