What A Wonderful World
George D. Weiss / George Douglas - Louis Armstrong

Spoken intro of the 1970 version:

Some of you young folks been saying to me:
"Hey Pops: What d'you mean 'What a wonderful world'?
How about all them wars all over the place? You call them wonderful?
And how about hunger and pollution? That ain't so wonderful either."

Well, how about listening to old Pops for a minute!
Seems to me, it aint the world that's so bad but what we're doin' to it.
And all I'm saying is: See what a wonderful world it would be if only we'd give it a chance.
Love, baby, love, that's the secret, yeah.
If lots more of us loved each other we'd solve lots more problems.
And then this world would be a gasser.

That's why ol' Pops keeps saying.
