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 GIVE ME YOUR KISSES,
I'LL GIVE YOU MY HEART,
GIVE ME YOUR PROMISE
THAT WE'LL NEVER PART.
I'LL GIVE YOU LOVE
AND DEVOTION
HIGH AS THE SKY ABOVE,
DEEPER THAN THE DEEPEST OCEAN.

GIVE ME THE RIGHT
TO CALL YOU ALL MINE
AND I'LL BE TRUE
TILL THE ENDING OF TIME.
GIVE ME YOUR KISSES,
I'M WILLING TO START
AND I'LL GIVE YOU MY HEART.

Lyrics A MAN WANTS TO WORK
FOR HIS PAY,
A MAN WANTS A PLACE
IN THE SUN,
A MAN WANTS A GIRL
PROUD TO SAY
THAT SHE'LL BECOME
HIS LOVING WIFE;
HE WANTS A CHANCE
TO GIVE HIS KIDS
A BETTER LIFE,
YES.
WELL HELLO,
HELLO,
HELLO BROTHER.
YOU CAN TRAVEL
ALL AROUND THE WORLD
AND BACK,
YOU CAN FLY
OR SAIL
OR RIDE
A RAILROAD TRACK.
BUT NO MATTER
WHERE YOU GO
YOU'RE GONNA FIND
THAT PEOPLE
HAVE THE SAME THINGS
ON THEIR MINDS.

WELL,
HELLO BROTHER,
HELLO,
YEAH.

HE WANTS A CHANCE
TO GIVE HIS KIDS
A BETTER LIFE,
YES.
WELL HELLO,
HELLO,
BROTHER HELLO,
I SAID HELLO,
HELLO,
BROTHER HELLO.

Lyrics PARDON THE SMILE ON MY FACE,
MY FRIEND,
DREAMING OF REACHING
MY JOURNEYS END,
I'M HEADING STRAIGHT
FOR MY HEARTS DESIRE;
GEE,
IT'S GOOD TO KNOW
I'M NEAR
THE HOME FIRE.
ALL OF THE FOLKS
THAT I LOVE
ARE THERE,
I GOT A DATE
WITH MY FAVORITE CHAIR.
WITH EVERY STEP
EVERY HOPE
GROWS HIGHER;
DIDN'T KNOW HOW MUCH
I MISSED THE HOME FIRE.

THE NOISES,
THE TV,
THE RUSTY OLD PIPES,
THE CAT
ALWAYS TEASING MY DOG.
THE NEIGHBORS,
THE QUARRELS,
THE SCREAMING OF KIDS;
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS
I'LL SLEEP LIKE A LOG.

HEAVEN
IS WAITING FOR ME,
MY FRIEND,
SEVEN OR EIGHT DREAMS
AROUND THE BEND,
AND IF
YOU'RE EVER IN TOWN
INQUIRE;
WE'LL BE GLAD
TO HAVE YOU SHARE
THE HOME FIRE.

Lyrics WHERE THERE IS SUNSHINE,
OH, THAT'S WHERE YOU ARE,
WHERE THERE IS LAUGHTER,
THEN YOU CAN'T BE FAR.
YOU'RE IN MY DREAMS
EVERY NIGHT,
OH, HOW I LONG
TO HOLD YOU TIGHT;
I NEED YOU.
I'LL FOLLOW YOU DEAR
FROM HERE TO A STAR,
YOUR LIPS ARE HONEY,
BUT SWEETER BY FAR.
FROM NOW
TILL FOREVER
I'LL KEEP DREAMING OF
YOU,
AND THE SUNSHINE OF LOVE.

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.
