Not a Wonderful World

(borrowed from Louis Armstrong.)

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
I see fields of green, and clouds of white,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefaultdefault(Pause)
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
I see forests fall, and species doomed,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
And profits boom, for you know whom,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
And I think to myself, s'not a wonderful world

defaultdefault
The colours of the rainbow, that mix in oil spills,

It damages our rivers, and makes our children ill,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
I see men making plans, they don't know what they do,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefaultdefault
They need a lesson in something new,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefaultdefault
I see babies crying, stunted they'll grow,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
They'll know more pain than we'll ever know,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
And I think to myself, s'not a wonderful world.

defaultdefault
The colours of the rainbow, upon the Union Jill,

An emblem of the future, to show the peoples will,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
I see friends squatting land, and grow their own food,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefaultdefault
I think the message is getting through,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
I see change a 'coming, The movement grow,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
Then governments, we'll overthrow,

defaultdefaultdefaultdefault
Then perhaps it could be, such a wonderful world,

(slowly)
defaultdefaultdefaultdefault defaultdefault(G D finish)
Then perhaps it could be, such a wonderful world.
