Date: 18 Aug 00 - 08:51 PM

I would like to have the words to the song sung by Louis Armstrong...I do not know if this is the title...Wonderful World... but the first line is "I see leave of green, red roses too, I see them bloom for me and you... and I think to myself, "What a wonderful world"... I heard this song was actually written by Willie Nelson's father for his mother... so if anyone can send these lyrics and/or confirm the author, please do so... Thank you! and have a great day...:)

I was watching a movie the other day and they played Louie Armstrong's What A Wonderful World It Is and then I got to thinking what the lyrics were, so of course I thought of The Mudcat Cafe. So, if anybody knows a site where I might find the lyrics, please don't hesitate to write me a message.

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.

Found it at Lyricsworld:

Louis Armstrong - WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
(George Weiss / Bob Thiele)

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 colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?"
They're really saying "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

Louis Armstrong first heard this song over the telephone. He loved it the instant he heard it and told his manager to set up a recording session. But he stipulated that he wanted the studio artists to be absolutely ready when the time came for him to record the vocal. He said that he was only going to go through it once. And so what we hear was recorded in a single take.

At least, this is the story as I remember it.

Bob, if you ever manage to obtain a copy of Tony McManus' first solo CD (imaginatively titled "Tony McManus") you will hear a phenomenal version of WAWW, which segues beautifully into two Scottish tunes before moving back into WAWW. Easier to listen to than describe, but a masterpiece of musical arangement.(He plays the tune in DADGAD, btw) Murray

I agree that Tony is amazing.

Thanks for the tip, Murray. I'll have to ask him to play it for me the next time I see the youngster.
