Alpert, Herb - What A Wonderful World Lyrics

In the words of the great Louis Armstrong
An answer to young people saying
"What do you mean it's a wonderful world?
Well how 'bout all those wars all over the place?
You call that wonderful?
And how 'bout hunger and pollution?
That ain't so wonderful either.
It ain't the world that's so bad,
It's what we're doing to it.
What a wonderful world it would be,
If only we would give it a chance."

What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world, yeah

What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world

(What a, what a wonderful world)
(What a, what a, what a wonderful world)

What a (What a), What a (What a) wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world, yeah

What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world

What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world, yeah

What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a wonderful world, yeah
What a, what a, what a wonderful world, yeah

Alpert, Herb What A Wonderful World Comments
  1. Robert Reynolds

    I go back to the mid-60s as a teenager and his music was all over the radio, Tijuana Taxi, for example, was the best

  2. missCostales

    Fantastico Herb

  3. Dorian Lecoq

    Prefer Claude François

  4. Werner Hamilton

    What a truly good person you are! It is rare to meet an individual whom you'd call good, and it is even more rare to find a well known person who is good. (That is in the sense of living and displaying kindness, advocating and encouraging love among all people, especially those who are in some way different from ourselves.)

    I have admired you since my childhood in the 60's. One day my 4th or 5th grade music teacher asked a few of us to bring our favorite albums to class. The white kids in our recently integrated southern US school were crazy about the Osmonds. The black kids were into the Jackson 5. I brought the Herb Alpert TJB album "Going Places" to class. Most of the kids thought I was a little weird (maybe I was...) and I endured some ridicule. But thankfully the teacher was sweet and encouraging.

    My mother had introduced me to your music and to this day practices the same egalitarianism you demonstrate. I thank her and you for helping me and others appreciate the humanity of all peoples.

    Armstrong began as a youth in New Orleans-- a gang bangin' revolver toting' basket case-- until a benefactor took the time to show him agape love.  Too bad this video has a spinning ball globe earth having a pressurized atmosphere in direct contact with infinite vacuum space..........  Any seen a United Nations Flag cartography ?

  6. Naser Musa

    God is good all the time
    I was blessed to play on this humanitarian project with the legend Herb Alpert and some of the world's finest musicians.
    الرب صالح كل الوقت
    باركني الرب بالاشتراك بالعزف في هذا التسجيل الذي يعود ريعه لدعم اعمال انسانيه في العالم مع العازف المعروف هيرب البيرت ونخبه من افضل ميسيقيي العالم

    Thank you for keeping the amazing legacy of Satchmo alive with this incredible rendition of one of his greatest songs. I hope someday we'll have an International Jazz Hall of Fame in New Orleans so that his legacy will be remembered along with all of the other Jazz greats whose legacy should be honored as well.

    Oh Herb such a great song! As always another song of yours I will follow and love. wish my dad was still living he would just love this as he had all your albums and songs and now I have them! Continue the great work Herb and I know in heaven my dad and mom can hear this song!


    My dad had every Herb Alpert album and some of Louie Armstrong's; they were part of the soundtrack of my childhood. Dad passed in 2004, but I am so grateful he introduced me to Herb Alpert. He would be so tickled and amazed that Herb is still playing and releasing new work. Phenomenal!

    I was at a meeting the other night and one of the members of the board were not present and they said, he was not there because of Herb Albert and a few of us in the audience smiled because we know exactly who you are and thank you for all of your inspirations to date including this beautiful video for the Louis Armstrong Foundation. You may find my take on this wonderful world "48th annual earth day" on my channel. Happy listening and let the music play on.
