Armstrong, Louis - What A Wonderful World Lyrics




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 cry
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

Oh yeah

    “What a Wonderful World” was written by the team of jazz producer Bob Thiele and Songwriter Hall of Fame inductee George David Weiss. The original plan in 1967 was for the gravel-voiced, quirky jazz legend Armstrong to release the song as a piece that might quell some of the racial and political unrest in America, given its optimism and celebration of life. But, because of lack of promotion, the record didn’t go anywhere in the U.S., though other countries embraced it.


    In 1988 though, thanks to its inclusion in the Robin Williams movie Good Morning, Vietnam, “What a Wonderful World” finally claimed a spot on the U.S. top 40 charts. Armstrong, sadly, was long dead by this time. “What a Wonderful World,” like so many songs that resonate in perpetuity with the masses, expresses simple ideas in a simply constructed piece. 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 – that’s the first verse, and it says more in 25 words than many songs say in their entirety.


    George David Weiss knew a thing or two about popular songwriting, with a long track record in the big band world and on Broadway. But Bob Thiele was better known for his background with straight-ahead jazz giants like John Coltrane and Charles Mingus. He was a somewhat unlikely author of a piece that combined everyday lyrical sentiments with a memorable pop melody, given the fact that he excelled at an art form the general public has never embraced. Both men are gone now, but the song is what they are best known for in the pop world.


    To be selected for the Towering Song Award, a composition has to be recognized as “an individual song that has influenced our culture in a unique way over many years.” The first Towering Song Award was given in 1995, for Herman Hupfeld’s “As Time Goes By,” performed in the movie Casablanca by Dooley Wilson as the iconic character of Sam. From songs as innocuous as “Happy Birthday to You” to deeper compositions like Paul Simon’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” this award is given each year to a song that, for better or worse, has permeated the American consciousness. “What a Wonderful World” obviously qualifies.


    Armstrong, of course, was one of the originators of jazz, with an innovative ability on the trumpet and an idiosyncratic voice that changed the way so many jazz musicians looked at music. He sang in what was basically his speaking voice, with a unique delivery and sense of phrasing that made him instantly recognizable. “What a Wonderful World” has also been covered by Tony Bennett (who reportedly turned it down before Armstrong cut it), Joey Ramone, Anne Murray and others, and Armstrong’s version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.

    I like it
    Verse 1]
    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

    [Verse 2]
    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

    [Bridge]
    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

    [Verse 3]
    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
    Yes, I think to myself
    What a wonderful world
