What A Wonderful World.....

And I think to myself.....

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
For me and you

Yes, the human beans are back in the field.... And all is rosy. Nothing could be finer (than to be in a care home diner....)

All this lock-in/up/down we have been yearning for the things we missed. And now, perhaps, we can see clearer. Yes we....

 can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day

Johnny Nash

It's a glorious morning....

And it's so good to bee

A live....


Even in the dark woods

Where the nettles blow

And old chestnuts die

Who would be a Red Admiral?

Or a Marbled White?

A Small Skipper?

A gatekeeper?

Or even a Large White?

[Size isn't everything....]

It's too much to swallow....

But it's better by far,
than being in a car.....

Or in some fairy shanty town....

Please don't be a teasel....

Give us a rye smile....

And move over darling.....

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"

Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Oh yeah

[Written by Bob Thiele and George Weiss]

Oh, yes I can make it now the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is that rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
Look all around, there's nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead, there's nothing but blue skies

Johnny Nash

Oh Yeah!

Thanks Louis!

I remember, in 1971, I was on a train, and I saw a discarded newspaper with the headline Louis Armstrong dies.  It was 1971.  I was 20, you were 71, and no more.....  

It was a wonderful world

  1. Cricket's back... and, of course, England has just lost. But at least it's to the Windies rather than those damned Australians...
