"What A Wonderful World" as written by and Doug Dipreta....
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I say to myself, what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
Bright sunny days, dark sacred nights
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow are so pretty in the skies
Are also on the faces of the people walking by
I see friends shaking hands saying
How do you do?
They're really saying I love you
I see babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    General CommentI love this version, they used it at the end of Bowling For Columbine, Which I find ironic cause they blammed Rock music on the fact that those guys went out and killed all those students. I think your supposed to read it like that.

    Awesome version of the song!

    Song MeaningThis is, to date, the only song that brings me to tears. Whenever shit goes wrong around me, I turn on this song, and the meaning I've attacked to it makes me feel better.

    General CommentI love the smooth easiness of this song and I think it's wicked that Joey could retain his talent even without the assistance of the Ramones (one of my fav bands ever). RIP JOey-your ghost is still rockin, too tough to die
