What a Wonderful World with David Attenborough

It is very rare I post 2 videos in a week but I saw this in video in my inbox this morning and it made my day.

Just for today, let’s take a step out of our cubicles and desks for a few moments, stop complaining about the weather and take a walk to a park if necessary, to enjoy the world for what it is…

..for it truly is a wondderrrfull world..

Led me to Louis Armstrong’s original spoken intro version..

“Some of you young folks been saying to me,
“Hey Pops, what 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 better.

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.

Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Oh yeah!”
