Lyrics YOU LOOK AT ME
AND THEN A SONG BEGINS,
PLAYED ON A MILLION VIOLINS,
MY HEAD GOES REELING
AND AROUND IT SPINS,
FANTASTIC,
FANTASTIC, THAT'S YOU.
YOU WHISPER, 'DARLING'
AND BEFORE MY EYES,
A BLAZE OF FIREWORKS
LIGHT UP THE SKIES,
MY HEART GROWS WINGS
AND THEN AWAY IT FLIES,
FANTASTIC,
FANTASTIC, THAT'S YOU.
YOU PERFORM MIRACLES
WHENEVER
YOU HOLD ME NEAR.
TENDER,
WARM MIRACLES
THAT MAKES ME
SURRENDER, DEAR.
AND WHEN YOU KISS ME,
HEAVEN OPENS WIDE,
AND THERE YOU ARE
INVITING ME INSIDE,
NO WONDER, ANGEL,
THAT I'M STARRY EYED,
FANTASTIC,
FANTASTIC, THAT'S YOU.

Lyrics THE ORIOLE WITH JOY
WAS SWEETLY SINGING,
THE LITTLE BROOK
WAS BABBLING IT'S TUNE,
THE VILLAGE BELLS AT NOON
WERE GAILY RINGING,
THE WORLD SEEM'D BRIGHTER
THAN A HARVEST MOON.
FOR THERE WITHIN MY ARMS
I GENTLY PRESSED YOU,
AND BLUSHING RED,
YOU SLOWLY TURNED AWAY.
I CAN'T FORGET THE WAY
I ONCE CARESSED YOU,
I ONLY PRAY
WE'LL MEET ANOTHER DAY.
I'VE REALLY COME A LONG WAY
FROM THE CITY,
AND THOUGH MY HEART'S BREAKING
I'LL BE BRAVE.
I'VE BROUGHT THIS BUNCH
OF FLOWERS,
I THINK THEY'RE PRETTY,
TO PLACE
UPON A FRESHLY MOLDED GRAVE.
IF YOU WILL SHOW ME, FATHER,
WHERE SHE'S LYING,
OR IF IT'S FAR,
JUST POINT IT OUT TO ME.
SAID HE,
SHE TOLD US ALL
WHEN SHE WAS DYING
TO BURY HER
BENEATH THE APPLE TREE

IN THE SHADE
OF THE OLD APPLE TREE
WHERE THE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
I COULD SEE.
WHEN THE VOICE THAT I HEARD,
LIKE THE SONG OF THE BIRD,
SEEM'D TO WHISPER
SWEET MUSIC TO ME.
I COULD HEAR
THE DULL BUZZ OF THE BEE,
IN THE BLOSSOMS
AS YOU SAID TO ME,
WITH A HEART THAT IS TRUE,
I'LL BE WAITING FOR YOU,
IN THE SHADE OF
THE OLD APPLE TREE.

Lyrics A NEW ORLEANS WOMAN,
SHE'S ALRIGHT WITH ME.
A NEW ORLEANS WOMAN,
SHE'S ALRIGHT WITH ME.
'CAUSE WHEN SHE COOKS
THAT OLD GUMBO FILLET,
I'M AS HAPPY
AS I CAN BE.
I LOVE MY BABY,
I'M GONNA TELL YOU
THE REASON WHY.
YES, I LOVE MY BABY,
WELL,
I'M GONNA TELL YOU
THE REASON WHY.
NEVER TOLD YOU
THIS BEFORE,
YOU'VE GOT TO STAY
WITH ME
'TIL THE DAY I DIE.

Lyrics (lyrics):

BLUE -
FROM MY HEAD
TO MY SHOES.
I'M BLUE TODAY,
I'VE GOT A MEAN,
EVIL FEELING,
AND I'M FULL OF GIN.
ON MY WAY
TO THE WEST END,
AND THAT'S WHERE TROUBLES
WILL BEGIN.
MY MAN,
MY DAMN
LOW-DOWN
MEAN HOUND,
IN TOWN
WITH MY BEST FRIEND
RUNNIN' AROUND.
OH, THE UNDERTAKER MAN,
GONNA' KNOCK
UPON HIS DOOR.
WOE IN THE WEST END,
WOE IN THE WEST END,
GONNA SEE SOME SHOOTIN'
LIKE THEY NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
I MEAN MY MAN
AND BEST FRIEND
WILL NEVER CHEAT
IN WEST END
ANY MORE.
BLUE -
FROM MY HEAD
TO MY SHOES,
SO BLUE TODAY,
I'VE STILL GOT
THAT MEAN,
LOW-DOWN FEELING
I'M GONNA HEAR BAD NEWS.
I'M ON MY WAY
TO THE WEST END,
TO THOSE OLD, OLD,
UGLY WEST END BLUES,
THOSE WEST END BLUES.

Lyrics 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
GOIN' BY.
I SEE FRIENDS
SHAKIN' HANDS,
SAYIN',
HOW DO YOU DO?
THEY'RE REALLY SAYIN',
I LOVE YOU.

I HEAR
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.
