Video: Louis Armstrong sings “What a Wonderful World” (1967)

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 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 crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world

    Thank you for this on a day when health care may deteriorate even further. My father used to take me to Ravinia Park on the north side of Chicago a long time ago. And Louis Armstrong sang this every time he was there.
