Our Wonderful World

Louis Armstrong’s What A Wonderful World is the only song, in my opinion, capable of describing in simplest of words what our planet is really all about.

And since we are celebrating Earth Day today, so I got this idea of showing you pictures I have taken, using the lyrics of Louis Armstrong’s classic number.

“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.

 

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.

wonderful world

Yes, I think to myself,

What a wonderful world.

Oh yeah.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Louis Armstrong!
