"Lovely Day" as written by and Skip/withers Scarborough....
When I wake up in the morning, love
And the sunlight hurts my eyes
And something without warning, love
Bears heavy on my mind

Then I look at you
And the world's alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it's gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you
And the world's alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it's gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you
And the world's alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it's gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

    General Commentis it just me or is this soul legend underrated? this song's enough to lift anyone after a bad day, its aimed more at people in relationships, but hey whatever situation you're in its bound to put a smile on your face! lovin' it, macdonalds style!

    General CommentI agree w/schitzo15. People always look at me weird because I like soul,and I like oldies. Well there's a reason, the good songs are hard to fing these days! They don't necessarily bring you up and make you feel good. I will always love soul because it has the ability to do that. This song is awesome mainly because of how it can lift you up and make you happy, and sometimes, that's all people really need.

    General CommentAngeleyes, 90% of my iTunes are pre-1990!

    Good music is so hard to find but here in Merseyside we have a vast music network and one of these artists I can't stop listening to!

    General CommentIt's about your soul mate I think. Appreciating every experience and every feeling you have. Knowing that no matter how many challenges you must face, having this person in your life gives you strength and happiness. Beautiful.

    General CommentJust realized "Thank You" by Dido is saying the exact same thing as this song. Almost word by word - though with a very different mood.
